In the context of the current health crisis, the importance of reliable and
timely population data is more apparent than ever – we need to know where
people are located, what conditions they are facing, what infrastructure is
available, and what basic services they can access. Additionally, without
reliable and timely population data linked to location, we cannot ensure
that everyone is counted and that no one will be left behind.

Fortunately, gridded population data have emerged as an important tool for
improving the timeliness and granularity of population
estimates, particularly during the current pandemic, but many users are
unfamiliar with their utility.

In an exclusive upcoming webinar, the International Science Council joins
the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network’s Thematic Research
Network on Data and Statistics (SDSN TReNDS) and a panel of experts in a
technical discussion on the use gridded population data in a variety of
applications, including infectious disease and disaster response; survey
planning; sea-level rise; water availability; and more.

The webinar will also review several of the nuances of the various
datasets presented in TReNDS’ newly released report, *Leaving No One Off
The Map: A Guide For Gridded Population Data For Sustainable Development*

*Panelists Include:*

   - Jessica Espey, SDSN TReNDS’ Director and Senior Advisor, UN SDSN
   - Dr. Susana Adamo, Research Scientist at the Center for International
   Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN)
   - Victor Ohuruogu, Program Manager at the Global Partnership for
   Sustainable Development Data (GPSDD)
   - Hayden Dahmm, SDSN TReNDS’ Analyst
