The International Network for Data on Impact and Government Outcomes (INDIGO) is an emerging data collaborative interested in sharing data about the design, implementation and evaluation of outcome-based projects. INDIGO’s ambition is to support the creation and use of quality data by policymakers, NGOs, citizen advocates and anyone who is addressing or is interested in complex social problems.

The International Network for Data on Impact and Government Outcomes (INDIGO) peer learning group is about building shared culture and standards around data in social outcome-based projects. The group meets quarterly and is a forum for civic tech enthusiasts, policy-makers and other actors in cross-sector partnerships for social outcomes to work together towards better data for better social outcomes.

Session overview

For the sixth INDIGO peer learning group, we presented our Technical and Learning Report about our 2021 Summer Hack and Learn and heard from participants and challenge leaders about how they want to keep working on their challenges.

In the second part of our meeting, we heard from Silvana Fumega and Nicolás Grossman, both from the Global Data Barometer. They shared initial findings from their work on data availability across the world, with a special focus on low and middle-income countries. The guiding questions for this part of the session were: What different types of data are available around the world? How much data can we access in low and middle-income countries? And what about capacity to analyse and use that data for evidence-based decision making? If you are interested in their approach to these questions, you can read about their methodology here.

Finally, we closed the session with our usual round of INDIGO news and announcements.
