After the successful launch of our SD Talks Special Series on Data for Sustainable Development in March 2017, we are pleased to announce the second webinar session of the series. Organised by the UNSSC Knowledge Centre for Sustainable Development in partnership with Data-Pop Alliance, the second webinar session on Partnership for Sustainable Development Data: Mobilising Data for Leaving No One Behind will be held on Friday 28 April 2017 at 02:00 PM CEST. The webinar session will shed light on the importance of partnering around data and introduce the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data initiative, which is a global network of governments, NGOs, and businesses working together to strengthen the inclusivity, trust, and innovation in the way that data is used to address the world’s sustainable development efforts.

The speaker for the webinar session will be Dr. Claire Melamed, Executive Director of Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data. She was previously the Head of the Growth and Equity Programme at ODI, and prior to that, the Head of Policy at ActionAid UK. Dr. Melamed has been involved with a number of data revolution initiatives, including as lead author and editor of “A World That Counts,” an influential report commissioned by the United Nations Secretary-General on the importance of data to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.

The webinar session will be followed by a Q&A session where the speaker will take live questions from the audience.
