20240321T0900 20240321T1300 Africa/Accra Maximizing Insights: Navigating and Managing Data Lifecycle

The strategic utilization of data is integral to both humanitarian and development contexts, providing transformative, data-informed insights that shape effective strategies and interventions. In this current data management landscape, organizations face challenges such as rapidly growing data volumes, ensuring data privacy and security in compliance with evolving regulations, integrating diverse data sources, and harnessing advanced technologies like AI and cloud computing. Organizations also need to ensure they are navigating the trend towards data democratization and real-time analytics, while ensuring that its handling respects individual rights and societal values and avoids harm or bias. This is critically important in humanitarian and development context – making the most of the data that is collected and using data for improved outcomes, all the while ensuring data practices do no harm. 

In this workshop, we will explore the data-centric universe, designed to provide an in-depth grasp of various data methodologies crucial for extracting actionable insights and making informed decisions. 

The workshop will be interactive, featuring hands-on exercises, real-life case studies, and expert-led discussions. Participants will gain practical insights on how to manage the data lifecycle effectively in their organization. This workshop is tailored for MEAL and Programming teams working with data, data governance teams, data scientists, data analysts, IT professionals, and anyone interested in gaining a deeper insight into data management strategies for development and humanitarian organizations. 

Key highlights of the workshop include:
