This session will present an overview of USAID's development data directives (e.g., USAID's Development Data Policy, USAID's Public Access Plan) for effectively managing USAID-funded data, especially federally funded scientific research data. It will focus on data management issues related to intellectual property rights, licensing, copyright, and data sharing and use. The discussion attempts to highlight data management best practices that USAID and the development data community can advance together to promote responsible use of data.
