Data for Development in Africa

Limitations in data production, quality, access, and use are holding back the fight to end extreme poverty, combat climate change, and ensure a healthy life for all.

 

But change is coming — a data revolution is underway. Bold commitments to use data and technology to improve lives and livelihoods were made at a high-level convening of African leaders in Nairobi, Kenya.

 

The Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data, the Governments of Kenya and Sierra Leone, and Safaricom hosted Data for Development in Africa from 29-30 June 2017, in collaboration with the African Development Bank, the UN Economic Commission for Africa, and the Governments of Ghana, Senegal, and Tanzania. African countries made commitments in the fields of business, agriculture, civil registration, health, migration, and data capacity.

Achieving the SDGs requires the partnership of governments, the private sector, civil society, and citizens alike and requires unprecedented amounts of data to achieve and monitor them, to make sure we leave a better planet for future generations.
