Resilient Recovery Series: Data for Development and COVID-19

July 28, 2020 | 11:00am

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.
