The widespread of ICTs has paved the way for a data revolution. This revolution offers governments new opportunities that can help increase efficiency, transparency, and improve public services. However, the slow adoption of data in governance can be attributed numerous reasons, including political and technical, such as the lack of data standards, poor data quality, poor information governance, and lack of appropriate policy frameworks.
In an effort to inform policymakers on the role of accurate, accessible, timely and reliable data in enhancing governance, formulating policies and strategies, and delivering services, APCICT/ESCAP will conduct a sub-regional Training on Realizing Data-Driven Governance for Central Asia, from 23 to 25 August 2021. Tailored for government officials and potential trainers from central and local governments and training institutions in Central Asia countries, the three-day training will be based on APCICT’s Academy module on “Realizing Data-Driven Governance”.
It aims to provide participants with the opportunity to deepen their knowledge and understanding of the topic and to develop capacities to deliver training for policymakers and civil servants at the central and local government levels. The event will consist of a series of lectures, group discussions, and presentations.
