The second day of the conference started with a short keynote address, followed by the lightning talks session. The session took place on Tuesday 25th of October from 09:00am to 09:45am CEST. It will be live-streamed.
Short keynote address
This keynote reflected on what we have learned after three years of implementation of the "Strengthening data practices within francophone CSOs" project initiated and led by CartONG, with the support of 10 partner organizations and the French Development Agency. Building on the results of the evaluation of the project, we explored various questions: Where did we start from? What did it achieve? What obstacles did we encounter? What have we learned? What challenges remain to be tackled in the sector?
This short keynote address was delivered by Maeve de France, IM Project Manager at CartONG, in charge of the initiative.

Johana Bretou-Klein, Junior Analyst - Groupe URD, representing the ADAPT Initiative
Climate change is leading to more frequent, more destructive and less predictable disasters. It is contributing to forced displacement and magnifying the damaging effects of conflict. Many of the current approaches to disaster response and humanitarian aid need to evolve to meet these challenges. The ADAPT initiative brings together stakeholders to work on such changes. In this lightning talk, we will present the initiative, currently in its inception phase, detailing its main objectives: 1) Build a broader and more inclusive coalition around climate-related crises, 2) Raise awareness on the threats of, and responses to, climate-related crises., 3) Support organisations in affected countries to generate and share knowledge of ‘what works’ in responding to climate-related crises., 4) Assist humanitarian and disaster management organisations to plan for climate-related crises, and 5) Make scientific knowledge on climate and disasters available to communities and practitioners on the ground.
|Yann Rebois, Head of Geo Data & Analytics - GIS coordinator - ICRC||
In this lightning talk, ICRC will reflect on how data can empower the people most at risk of the current global crisis, and who are the best placed to adapt to and prevent disasters, leveraging technology in support of localization and new approaches of humanitarian action. During the presentation, we will refer in particular to the Red Safe application "service nearby" for the beneficiaries developed by ICRC: https://www.icrc.org/en/redsafe
|Marina Kobzeva, Head of Ukraine programmes - Ground Truth Solutions||
In this lightning talk, Ground Truth Solution will put CwC on the spot, outlining from their experience how it is possible to share one's findings with communities in a meaningful way.
|Mariana Gonzalez Carrillo, Junior Advisor - GIZ||
Globally, women perform more than three times as much as men in unpaid care work (ILO, 2018). This decreases their opportunities to participate in other social, cultural and economic activities. Only behind Chile, men in Mexico dedicate the least time to unpaid care work. Evidence suggests that a better care ecosystem can advance women’s economic participation, but policymakers often lack information, for example, on infrastructure demands, that can help build such an ecosystem. GIZ’s Data4Policy initiative, funded by The German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development, is working with multiple stakeholders, including the Ministry of Women’s Affairs in Mexico City, to bridge these gender data gaps. Aligned with the forum’s objective of creating more resilient data systems, this lightning talk will introduce a pilot project which combines new data sources, such as satellite imagery and crowdsourced data, to strengthen care policies in Mexico City.
