Description

With the launch of the new report “Counting on the World” from SDSN’s Thematic Research Network on Data and Statistics (SDSN TReNDS), TReNDS is hosting its first interactive half-day learning session as a side event to the annual International Conference on Sustainable Development (ICSD). This learning session will highlight the potential and urgency of data partnerships for sustainable development. The format of the event will be three sessions drawing from diverse case studies on innovations in data collection and sharing, knowledge management, and localizing the SDGs. After brief introductory remarks, participants will give short 15 minute presentations and/or demonstrations, followed by a half-hour interactive Q&A and discussion with panelists and attendees. These sessions will also highlight lessons from the first years of SDSN TReNDS’ Solutions Initiatives. In partnership with Group on Earth Observations (GEO).
