Cartagena Data Festival


The Cartagena Data Festival, a three day festival in Colombia, is being organised by ODI, Africa Gathering, CEPEI, Data-Pop Alliance, PARIS21, UNDP and UNFPA. The event will focus on solving critical gaps in coverage, access and analysis of data, thereby contributing to the global effort to drive progress in the post-2015 agenda.

Conference objectives:

Drive the changes that are needed to advance a data revolution by bringing together the people and organisations whose innovations, resources, expertise and influence can make them happen

Develop concrete solutions and practical tools to produce long term and sustainable progress through a data revolution

Build the ideas, innovations and partnerships needed to monitor the sustainable development goals

The Cartagena Data Festival will bring together 300 participants from across the world – including government representatives, civil society organisations, technical innovators, academics and data activists – to join the global conversation and ensure the data revolution is informed by perspectives at every level.
