PANEL DISCUSSION: Data Governance for a Digitally-Enabled State
The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted how data has demanded rapid and evidence-based decisions in critical situations. Yet data governance remains a challenge for many countries. A data-driven public sector allows data sharing and re-use across critical areas (e.g. healthcare, employment, education, social welfare) in a transparent and agile way; it strengthens planning, delivery and monitoring of results; it also builds public trust in governments and respect for digital rights. The session will look at what needs to be done to realise the potential of a full data-driven public sector.
