Targeting Covid-19 relief in Uganda: The role of data, statistics and evidence
In this webinar a range of speakers discuss the role of data in targeting social safety nets in Uganda, an issue that is coming strongly to the fore with the impacts of Covid-19 on Uganda's poorest communities.
At this event, we heard from a range of speakers followed by a Q&A with event attendees looking at the role of data in targeting social safety nets in Uganda. This issue is coming strongly to the fore with the impacts of Covid-19 on Uganda's poorest communities. The objectives of the event were to:
- Bring together government, donors, civil society, academia and the general public to discuss role of data in Covid-19 response in Uganda in particular, and emergencies in general
- Raise the profile of data and evidence in Covid-19 policy and discourse
- Leverage existing data, governance processes and structures to reach the most vulnerable with the government’s Covid-19 interventions
- Bring more attention to the multidimensional nature of poverty and call for more nuanced measurements and determination of poverty and its indicators
The event was hosted by DI and moderated by Bernard Sabiti, Senior Strategic Partnerships and Engagement Manager. We heard from a range of experts from the government, civil service, and non-governmental organisations on this vitally important topic.
