Through this webinar, Jon F. Kapp, Executive Director of Community Systems Foundation, outlines a proposal to address new demands and challenges in international development data, introducing tools to improve the way data is collected, managed and utilized. In discussing ongoing projects in Cote D’Ivoire, Sudan and East Africa more broadly, Kapp highlights to viewers the power and potential of the Data For All toolkit as it relates to building new platforms and improving existing ones. With the capacity to create a federated system of national development plans, enhance geospatial mapping, monitor SDG progress and strengthen information systems, Kapp demonstrates the versatility of DFA Monitoring and how it can be leveraged to overcome key barriers that existed in the previous system, DevInfo. In this regard, the webinar highlights an evolution of monitoring technology and displays how Data For All technologies can create sustainable systems that empower national governments to operate independently from technical support, while engaging with communities of developers and users.
