PARIS21 is excited to launch our new podcast, “Data for the People: a post-crisis podcast” today!

The weekly podcast is an informal chat with leading actors and thinkers in the world of data and statistics that explores how the COVID-19 pandemic is changing the world of data, how data are being used to inform the response and recovery, and what a post-pandemic world of data and statistics might look like.

So what’s it all about? Listen to a special introductory episode by PARIS21 Executive Head, Johannes Jütting to learn more about why we’re doing a podcast and what questions we’re looking to explore.

In our first episode, Johannes speaks to the National Statistician of Ghana, Dr. Samuel Annim about the ways in which the country is innovating in order to continue collecting and disseminating relevant and timely data amidst an ongoing crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

In our second episode, we speak to Jessica Espey, Director of the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network (TReNDS) to discuss the impact of #COVID19 and emerging data governance issues.
