On 24 and 25 February the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, together with Leiden University and other partners organise the conference Responsible Data for Humanitarian Response. This expert meeting will bring together senior management (responsible for innovative practice) in the field of humanitarian response from public and private sectors as well as academia and INGOs/NGOs.
The programme splits into two parts. Day 1 will focus on addressing the data deficit in humanitarian response and the necessity of human-centered design. On day 2 the proceedings will zoom in on data governance. The moderation will be as interactive as possible and designed so that participants agree on concrete action points in order to improve data governance in humanitarian response. As part of the conference, there will be an ‘innovation market’ in the same location for selected organisations to showcase relevant products/services in the field of humanitarian response.
