DATA in the time of COVID-19
The current COVID-19 pandemic raises important questions about opening, sharing and using data. To address the need for data-driven decision making, Open Data Watch has produced a special edition of What’s Being Said with links to selected articles, visualizations and other information. This will be updated as new items become available.
WHAT’S BEING SAID
Each month, we compile a comprehensive review of relevant articles and reports contributing to the data revolution. Our particular areas of focus are open data, the Sustainable Development Goals, gender data, and official statistics. The entries for each piece of the conversation are organized by date and include details such as the publication title, the author, and organization. Brief summaries accompany each entry and contain a link to the original piece.
To help track all of the events happening in the field of development data, we have created this curated list, which we update about once a week. This list primarily includes large, international events related to the Sustainable Development Goals, development data, and open data. If you know of an event that should be included on this list, please email us at email@example.com.
