How can greater data science capacity across Africa increase the effectiveness of NGO’s and governments serving local populations?
Join the Center for Effective Global Action (CEGA) and data.org for a roundtable discussion exploring the building blocks required to build robust localized data science capacity that can accelerate social impact projects on the ground. This session will be led by data science practitioners in Africa who will share their experiences building capacity across Africa and suggest concrete strategies, educational requirements, and potential partnerships that can accelerate progress and advance social impact on the ground. Participants will gain a clear picture of the challenges and opportunities associated with data capacity in Africa, as well as concrete approaches for driving progress.
