Agenda for Tuesday, 30th November 2021

1) Review of progress on the Data Use Action Plan
2) Leadership of DUWG in 2022

1) Data Use Action Plan:…

The objectives in this plan are:

1. Understand barriers to data use
2. Ensure all users can access the data they need
3. Strengthen data literacy and capacity for use
4. Document real use cases

For each of these objectives, please come with your thoughts on:
* progress that has been achieved in this year
* any ongoing related work
* areas where there's a need for additional focus

For all three points, we should be thinking about DUWG, Secretariat, and other community initiatives.

The main output from this discussion should be a brief note summarising progress made this year and the DUWG's thoughts on areas we'd recommend further focus in 2022.
