Training Workshop: on 'How to use Data to Build Back Better Post-COVID-19.
Wednesday, 24 March  from 10:00 am - 11:00 am EST/2:00 pm - 3:00 pm GMT

Data have proven integral in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic - helping to track its spread, understand the virus' effects on citizens, and inform strategies to prevent transmission. As governments begin to implement their recovery strategies and work to ramp up their vaccination efforts, it will continue to prove invaluable. This event, co-hosted by SDSN TReNDS and Apolitical, aims to provide attendees with insights on how to best use data to inform their organizations' recovery efforts and implement effective strategies, including pitfalls to avoid and areas for further consideration. The event will also highlight practical approaches and guidance from officials who are dealing directly with the crisis and share lessons learned. Register here
