Modern NGOs are getting better at at collecting data, often through ICT tools or open data sources. But how do development organizations use this data, to inform plans, budgets, and management decisions – and what challenges do they face?
At next week's InterAction Forum, we will be discussing these challenges (and opportunities) with leading NGO representatives. Discussants will include: Nancy McGuire Choi and Taryn Davis (DG), Aria Grabowski (Oxfam America), Reid Porter (InterAction), Samhir Vasdev (IREX) – and (we hope) you.
During this interactive breakout session, we will explore cross-sector solutions that can be practically adopted by participants including tools and approaches for communicating evidence, strategies for increasing data use and demand, and methods for prioritizing impactful data.
