 The Rockefeller Foundation and Mastercard-backed data.org, with an over $2 million grant from U.K.-based charity Wellcome, have launched a data skilling program called the India Data Capacity Accelerator.

Aim: The program aims to train one million Indians in using data to address climate and health-related challenges.

Collaborations: The accelerator will collaborate with three universities—Ashoka University, the Indraprastha Institute for Information Technology, and BITS Pilani—and work with the South Asia arm of the Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL).

Usage: The example can be used in questions related to skill development/ use of data to predict and measure air pollution and inform mitigating strategies.
