The Tanzania Data Lab (dLab) as an NGO, is a center of activity, connecting the data revolution to national priorities, global commitments and diverse programs and investments. This is done by enabling data analysis and use to become more prominent in decision making in Tanzania. The dLab activities include training in data literacy and analysis, focused content-area data analytics, and the development of “use cases” to showcase how data can be used to improve lives. The dLab will support the development of a roadmap, assisting the country to monitor progress toward meeting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
