Session title: Opening the black box: How humanitarian decision makers use data?
26 Apr 23 16:00-17:30   (Pleniere E)

After last year's successful "Catching the black swan" session, ACAPS organises a follow-up discussion focusing on "Opening the black box" of humanitarian decision-making. ACAPS, pulling from its experience in producing analysis and data contributing to strategic decisions, will host a panel of senior humanitarian decision-makers exploring the balance between evidence-based and subjective decision-making, as well as data utilisation during decision-making and anticipatory action.
