what they're saying

Governments, companies, NGOs and individuals need good data to know where problems are, how to fix them, and if the solutions are working. But current data is not good enough.
— Enrico Giovannini, UNSG Co-Chair of the Independent Expert Advisory Group
We need to produce the right data, to the right people, at the right time, in the right format.
— Paris 21
To achieve the full potential of data-driven development, it will be necessary for all stakeholders – government, the private sector, development organizations, and the public – to work in coordination to bridge these gaps.
— William Samoei Ruto, Deputy President of Kenya
Ultimately, our ability and firm resolve to analyze and act on data will be the key to better policymaking... by taking action together to harness the power of data for sustainable development, I am confident that the global community will be all that much closer to achieving the aspirations of the post-2015 development agenda.
— Jack Lew, United States Secretary of the Treasury
