Lola Talabi-Oni

Through her role as Technical Advisor to the Statistician-General at the National Bureau of Statistics in Nigeria, Lola Talabi-Oni recognized early on during the COVID-19 pandemic that aggregating data across government organizations could help to dramatically improve public understanding of the virus and aid ongoing response efforts. Working with the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data, hosted by the United Nations Foundation (UN Foundation), the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA), and 14 other partners, Lola built and launched Nigeria’s National Coronavirus Geospatial Data Hub. The Hub uses cutting-edge data visualizations to improve accessibility to real-time COVID-19 information for government agencies and the general public. A central resource for data related to COVID-19 and response efforts, the National Coronavirus Geospatial Data Hub has been an indispensable tool in Nigeria’s fight against the virus.
