Technical Assistance to UNDP Togo’s Open and Big Data Activities and Plans

Data-Pop Alliance (DPA) offered to provide technical assistance to the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Togo Country Office (CO) to support its efforts to leverage open and Big Data for the country’s development, including SDG monitoring and promotion. The proposed consultancy aimed to advance the state of knowledge, know-how, awareness, and capacities to harness the potential of Open Data and Big Data in Togo. The project was expected to contribute to the recognition of the importance of data, ensuring that access and analysis of personal data did not infringe on people’s privacy, safety, and agency.
