Closing the Gap between Data and Decision-Making

Demonstration | Online

About the Event

In a world inundated with information, the key to progress lies not just in the accumulation of data but in our ability to interpret, understand, and act upon it effectively. Yet traditional forms of M&E data analysis often do not successfully speak to forward-looking, context-dependent decision-making processes.

This event will introduce participants to Participatory Modeling for Adaptation, a new model-based approach to data analysis that infuses Theories of Change with context information, M&E data, and contribution estimates to provide decision-makers with detailed, real-time scenarios and predictive performance analyses.
