Data Literacy for Prosperous Nepal

Nepal Data Literacy Program is designed to catalyze stronger data-driven decision-making by government and non-government actors (mass media, civil society, and academia) through targeted Data Literacy Workshop to help Nepal achieve its development goals.

The program comprises a 100 hour modular, customizable pedagogy to support both technical skills-building and efforts to enhance a ‘culture of data use’ among Nepalis. Currently 40 hour of course materials are available on the website. Another 60 hour of course materials will be available in September, 2019.
