Webinar 2 | Understanding and Measuring Data Use
18 December 2018; 10:00 - 11:00 am ET (Washington D.C. time)

This webinar will bring together speakers to discuss methods for measuring data use; efforts to increase the capacity of producers to understand users’ needs on one end of the data value chain and policy makers and citizens to use the data on the other end; and what we can learn from current initiatives focusing on measuring data use. 

The goal of this webinar is to connect the dots between data production and data impact by highlighting lessons learned from recent research, strategies for increasing the use of data for decision making, and good practices on understanding and measuring use.

The webinar will be moderated by Shaida Badiee, Managing Director of Open Data Watch.

Featured speakers include:

  • Eric Swanson, Open Data Watch

  • Tanya Sethi, AidData

  • Muchiri Nyaggah, Local Development Research Institute (LDRI)
