This module provides practical guidance for advancing a data roadmap process aligned with the sustainable development goals (SDGs) at multiple scales taking into account regional, national and subnational considerations. The essence of the data roadmap process is increasing and improving the use of data for action for policy­making, service delivery, citizen empowerment, entrepreneurship and innovation to achieve sustainable development through whole­of­ government and multi­stakeholder approaches.


The Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data was launched during the SDGs Summit and UN General Assembly Meetings of September, 2015 to support countries around the world and stakeholders across sectors better harness the data revolution to achieve the SDGs as they are aligned and prioritized according to local priorities. A central pillar of this strategy is to support and foster innovation, learning, and sharing about country­led, whole of government, and multi­stakeholder data for sustainable development road­map processes. Based on country­led processes underway in all regions of the world and drawing on a remarkable range of expertize and resources on the data revolution convened and connected by the Partnership, a data roadmaps for sustainable development toolbox has been catalyzed.
