On 15 July 2019 the Individual Deprivation Measure (IDM) Program alongside Open Data Watch and UN Women, with support from the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data, hosted a High-Level Political Forum (HLPF) side event, Navigating the Politics of Open Data: Learning from producers, users and partners. The event was designed as a multistakeholder dialogue on the uncertainties that disaggregated data and new measurement approaches can create and how to manage them while supporting efforts towards better, more accessible and open development data.
The event brought together participants from around the world who gathered in New York City for the HLPF. It included individuals playing key roles within government, multilateral organizations and civil society to share approaches, issues and opportunities based on their experience and expertise.
