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 this INDIGO peer learning session, we discussed the use of technology for social outcomes measurement. We hosted two practitioners who were implementing or running pilot projects that use technology to monitor and measure outcomes achievements. The guiding questions for the first part of the session were: What are the specific technologies that could be useful for this type of project? How difficult it is to implement the use of these tools? What are the benefits for the project and what are the risks and disadvantages?

We spared some time, as usual, to share our quarterly INDIGO updates and extended an invitation to join our Hack and Learn event.
