Using data to inform policy making in times of crisis

The COVID-19 crisis has demonstrated the importance of data in making decisions which affect the lives of people and communities around the world.

This session will explore perspectives on how data can be used to drive informed decision making, particularly in times of crisis, and will bring perspectives from gGovernment, the private sector, IGOs and NGOs – all of whom have vital roles in ensuring government can operate at pace and cooperate with each other to meet the needs of the community and further enable societies.
Within the discussion participants will have the opportunity to explore the role that skills have to play in success, enabling remote government access, empowering cross agency collaboration and how approaches to privacy and security can build trust.
