Today is the first day of the Data and Accountability for the Post-2015 Development Framework (#data2015) dialogue, which will last until the 31st of January. Read the event description below:
“Building on the outcomes of the first phase of UNDG consultations on Post-2015 development priorities, UNDP, with the support of the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and in collaboration with several partners, will convene a global meeting focused on data and accountability in the new development framework.
About: In the lead up to 2015, several initiatives are emerging as development stakeholders endeavor to make the data revolution a reality. This conference will focus on bringing together various initiatives and key stakeholders active in the field of data and accountability, from governments, parliaments, international organizations, bilateral and multilateral development agencies, civil society, the private sector and academia, for a common understanding and enhanced collaboration.
Objective: The event aims to foster a common understanding of the concept of a “data revolution” and the potential roles of various stakeholders, and contribute to building a global partnership for development data and accountability for the post-2015 development agenda.
Expected outcomes: The event will feed into the intergovernmental and broader discussions on sustainable development goals and post-2015, and lead to a common roadmap for coherent follow up actions and advocacy to integrate data and accountability in the Post2015 development agenda.”
