On the 26th May 2022, CAHF in partnership with 71point4 and Reall, co-hosted a webinar aimed at articulating the key recommendations emanating from Uganda’s Data Landscape Report for further deliberation and engagement with the audience.
Ben Atkinson ( Research, Evidence & Learning Manager at Reall) made the opening remarks and CAHF’s Executive Director Kecia Rust took the audience through the background to the Data Agenda and vision for Open Access. This was followed by a presentation by Natalie Cuzen (Senior Consultant at 71point4), covering an overview of the Data Agenda, the data opportunity for Uganda and an overview of the data pipeline- focusing on what it is and how it can be leveraged. The session also included a panel discussion on how Uganda can address the data gaps- how key institutions could play an important role in making what data does exist visible and publicly available, in support of greater investment in affordable housing. The panel session was moderated by Kecia Rust, and the panelists included;
- Fiona Nshemerirwe– General Manager, Uganda Housing Cooperative Union,
- Samuel Mabala- Country Urban Adviser- Uganda, Cities Alliance, and
- Jimmy Barnard– Research Consultant
