At the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation's International Women's Day Forum held this month in New York, Devex Impact reporter Adva Saldinger discussed data and monitoring and evaluation techniques with representatives from WASH Advocates, the Harvard Kennedy SchoolIntel and the Clinton Foundation.
