Dear Colleagues,

Today marks the start of a week that is centred on data and knowledge. Data
can be seen as a basis to create information and develop knowledge.
Although not necessarily a linear process, data, information and knowledge
can result into wisdom and deeper insights.

The Global Knowledge for Development Conference
today and tomorrow (3-4 April) - will review and advance knowledge
management practices in the field of sustainable development. The
conference will discuss a wide range of issues including the JIU
Report on *Knowledge
Management in the United Nations System*, inaugurate the K4D Partnership,
and explore good practices in cross-sectoral knowledge management.

Zooming in from knowledge to data, DiploFoundation is organising a Roundtable
on Data Diplomacy
Wednesday, 5th April (see programme
supported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Finland. The roundtable
will explore the impact of statistics and big data on diplomacy and
international affairs. If you are interested in participating, write to Ms
Barbara Rosen Jacobson (barbarar at diplomacy.edu) for more information.

Not in Geneva this week? DiploFoundation and the Geneva Internet Platform
will be reporting from both events and publishing the event summaries on
the websites. Visit www.giplatform.org/data
 for more information about Geneva's data-related initiatives.

We wish you a good week full of data, information, knowledge, and wisdom!
