The Fourth Biennial High-level Meeting of the Development Cooperation Forum (DCF) is taking place at the UN headquarters in New York on 10 – 11 July 2014. A range of stakeholders will have the opportunity to participate in an open dialogue on the future of development cooperation in the post-2015 development agenda.  As part of DCF activities, CIVICUS, Social Watch, and NSI have organized a side event, People-powered Accountability: Innovative Ideas for Monitoring Progress Beyond 2015.

The side event will be held from 1:15-2:45 on July 11th, 2014 in Room B, Conference Building (details here). Its primary objective is to explore the opportunities and risks of the ‘data revolution’ and how new technologies and innovative forms of citizen reporting could enhance national and global monitoring and accountability in the post-2015 framework. To contribute to this discussion, NSI will present initial findings from the Post-2015 Data Test.
