Over the past decade we have witnessed a sea change in the use of information and communications technology in development.  The rapidly growing use of mobile devices by NGO field staff, government health workers and extension agents, and members of poor and vulnerable communities coupled with the emergence of increasingly digital economies, give us unprecedented access to high quality data in near real time – in hours and days rather than months and years.  How can we turn this data into information and knowledge that can drive better decisions – not only in understanding those approaches to development that yield stronger impacts – but in day-to-day operations of our field projects?  This presentation will discuss opportunities and strategies for taking the next steps in advancing an ICT4D strategy that leverages the power of data to advance our progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals.
