À propos de D4D.net

Une coopérative mondiale qui s’efforce de faire progresser les nouvelles stratégies d’utilisation des données pour relever les défis du développement dans le monde entier.

    D4D.net est une coopérative de recherche mondiale qui s’efforce de renforcer la collaboration au sein d’un large réseau de parties prenantes en développant et en mobilisant les connaissances nécessaires pour faire progresser l’utilisation éthique des données afin de relever les défis critiques du développement dans les pays du Sud.

    Le programme mondial de D4D entre dans une nouvelle phase. Les progrès réalisés dans le vaste domaine de la science des données peuvent entraîner une augmentation des capacités des organisations dans tous les secteurs. L’IA en particulier, alimentée par les données, suscite de nouvelles innovations et des changements sociaux transformateurs, tant positifs que négatifs.

Tout commence par un principe simple : l’utilisation responsable des données peut nous aider à atteindre les Objectifs de Développement Durable (ODD), à comprendre l’impact de la crise de la COVID, ou à identifier les principaux domaines prioritaires pour les programmes de développement à aborder à l’avenir. Cependant, nous devons en savoir plus, partager ce que nous savons et être prêts à travailler ensemble pour le bien public.

    D4D.net a été lancé en 2021 à l’initiative du Centre de recherches pour le développement international (CRDI)(s’ouvre dans un nouvel onglet) et est hébergé par Research ICT Africa(s’ouvre dans un nouvel onglet) et ILDA(s’ouvre dans un nouvel onglet). Il se crée à partir des activités des partenaires du réseau à travers les pays du Sud intéressés à renforcer la collaboration sur les données ouvertes, l’IA responsable, les mégadonnées (big data), le droit à la vie privée, la propriété intellectuelle, la cybersécurité, la surveillance en ligne, le SEC/FEC, et plus encore.

    Les ressources disponibles sur le site représentent un effort collectif visant à combler le déficit de connaissances mondial concernant l’utilisation responsable des données pour relever les défis du développement et faire progresser la démocratie, tout en répondant aux préoccupations éthiques et sociales liées à l’utilisation abusive des données.

    Dans cette phase initiale, les objectifs de D4D.net sont les suivants:

    • Accélérer la recherche

      Entreprendre un programme de recherche accéléré pour combler les lacunes critiques dans les données probantes nécessaires pour soutenir la prise de décision locale, nationale et mondiale liée aux stratégies de données pour le développement.

    • Catalyser l’action

      Partager les connaissances sur l’utilisation novatrice des données dans les domaines prioritaires du développement, tels que l’égalité des sexes, la santé, le changement climatique, l’éducation, la sécurité alimentaire, et bien d’autres encore.

    • Définir l’agenda

      Soutenir les organisations des pays du Sud dans l’élaboration d’une réponse mondiale aux défis du développement en mettant l’accent sur les leçons de l’utilisation des données, le renforcement des capacités et la collaboration avec la communauté.
