The Third International Open Data Conference will be held at the Shaw Centre in downtown Ottawa, Canada 28-29 May 2015. The conference will bring together voices from a wide variety of sectors to broaden the dialogue on how open data can be harnessed to ensure that all world citizens benefit.

Post-2015 Data Test team members from Bangladesh, Canada and Senegal will present key findings from the initiative through a moderated discussion led by Peter Taylor, Program Manager of the International Development Research Centre’s Think Tank Initiative. The discussion will take place on May 29, 2015 (Friday) at 13:30 hours in room 202, and address the following questions:

  • What is the adequacy of data, including disaggregated data, for measuring post-2015 progress across a selected set of goals at the country level?
  • Where improvements in data quality, accessibility and transparency have been made in the past, what have been the drivers?
  • How can technology-enabled and non-traditional modes of data collection support measurement in the post-2015 agenda?
