Upcoming Webinar: Using Data to Accelerate Access to Water Services in West Africa

Using Data to Accelerate Access to Water Services in West Africa

The event has ended, but please check back soon for a recording of the webinar.


The routine use of data in decision-making can dramatically improve the effectiveness of water service investments and accelerate progress toward the UN Sustainable Development Goals for water and sanitation.

This webinar from the Water and Development Alliance (WADA) will explore how governments in West Africa are using water point data with advanced analytics, including machine learning and GIS, to make better decisions about water services. Participants will discuss how they are already harnessing data and their plans to further the use of data for decisions at a local and national level.
