Workshop on Data Analytics for Service Delivery Monitoring at Pulse Lab Kampala

On Friday 27 May, Pulse Lab Kampala will host an interactive workshop to explore how new digital data sources, and big data analytics can be used to track and monitor the quality of public service delivery. Pulse Lab Kampala will showcase projects and tools which are currently in development with partners.
