Data for Decision Making Curriculum in Myanmar

Abstract

Since its momentous democratic elections in 2010, Myanmar has continued to transition from a society of heavy censorship to one inundated with information and data from across the globe. The changes in the information ecosystem have forced a shift in how the country’s government and civil society organizations approach data and use them for evidence-based decision making. This poster will present 1.) The findings of a locally conducted needs assessment of the data environments of Myanmar’s government and CSOs and 2.) A curriculum developed to support Myanmar’s organizations in more effective use of data for decision making.
