Resilient Recovery Series: Data for Development and COVID-19

Follow the event on Twitter #ResilientRecovery

The data landscape has been changing rapidly, with the explosion of data from private sources, such as mobile phones, electronic transactions and satellites. These new data could be used to complement traditional public data to improve the delivery of services to people most in need.

Public data, collected by national statistical offices, form the foundation for how countries decide where to allocate their resources.

But the coronavirus pandemic has drastically disrupted and hampered data collection efforts around the world – especially in developing countries.

Join us as we discuss this issue with Haishan Fu, Director of the Development Data Group at the World Bank. 

The Resilient Recovery Series includes in-depth interviews with the Bank’s leading experts focused on health, social, and economic responses, as well as policies, institutions, and investments that will be critical to resilient, inclusive, and sustainable recovery.
