More and more data is being collected in humanitarian operations, but is it being used effectively? Early warning, trends analysis, beneficiary feedback and other important opportunities to improve humanitarian operations may be missed because humanitarian organizations lack data-analysis capacity. This interactive, small-group workshop will support the establishment of the Humanitarian Data Fellows Programme being launched through the Centre for Humanitarian Data in The Hague later this year. Academic and technology sector partners will work together with humanitarian organizations to consider the requirements and design of this programme to increase data literacy for humanitarian organizations. Registration is required for this session and participation is capped at 35 people.
