This outcome document includes discussion on some of the needs workshop participants identified for justice data providers and data users such as classification of useful  datasets, assessing and strengthening data quality, mobilizing different data sources, and increasing investment in capacities of community-based practitioners on data related tools, analytical skills and data visualization strategies.
