INDIGO Quarterly Peer Learning Session 4


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. Learn more about INDIGO here.

Hack and Learn

For our bi-annual Hack and Learn event, we bring policymakers, data analysts and other leading representatives of the public and private sectors together to tackle pressing questions in the field of social outcomes. Harnessing skills and experiences from a diverse pool of actors, we provide a space for learning and community building around the use of data in the field and an opportunity to solve problems, co-produce and make better sense of the use of data.   

The March 2021 Hack and Learn was co-hosted by Georgetown University’s Beeck Center for Social Impact + InnovationINSPER, University of Cape Town’s Bertha Centre and Ashoka University’s Centre for Social Impact & Philanthropy. The event is sponsored by our partners at UK Government’s Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office. Learn more about the Hack and Learn sessions here.

INDIGO Quarterly Peer Learning Session 2021

For our 4th session, our INDIGO team and academic partners presented the new Technical and Learning report, co-produced as part of our Hack and Learn event. With our partners, we collated the lessons learned from the sessions to make sense of and use data on organisations, outcomes, public procurement, and social investment in impact bonds and other types of cross sector partnerships. The session also served to provide the latest updates and plans for our Impact Bond Dataset.

If you would like to join this session, get in touch with us at and you will receive an invitation with the agenda and Zoom link.
