Over this past decade of “Data Revolution”, the Open Data movement, the Big Data ecosystem, and the Official Statistics community, have become increasingly intertwined, leading to agreements around a number of key principles and objectives.

Against this background, DPA has partnered with UNDP Togo to support their strategy to advance the state of knowledge, know-how, awareness and capacities to harness the potential of Open Data and Big Data in Togo.

On 30 November 2018, DPA contributed to the first High Level Conference on Open Data held in Lomé, with a presentation on the Data Revolution for Sustainable Development (see below). The conference was co-organized by UNDP, the Embassy of the United States, the Ministry of Post and Digital Economy, the National Statistics Office, the Delegation of the European Union, and the Minodoo community.
