Our Data Toolkit for African Cities was featured on the BBC

Athena Infonomics, along with Development Gateway developed a toolkit which is designed to help City Governments transparently assess the current maturity of their data ecosystems, and identify high priority interventions for augmentation. The key differentiators in this toolkit include its ability to be adapted to any indicator set (for instance, to the SDGs), a built in customization layer to adjust for variations in the level of decentralization/ devolution across countries, and its ease of use (being designed for city managers and line function heads).

We are pleased to announce that the data toolkit has been featured on the BBC’s Click program, a weekly podcast curating the latest technology news.
