The idea of partnership – between institutions with shared interests but who otherwise would not connect, or be able to do so as easily – is at the heart of the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data.

These partnerships will pioneer new methods, derive new insights, build new infrastructure, and develop policies with the aim of facilitating better decisions that lead to better lives. Like many networks, the majority of these interactions have sometimes taken place behind closed doors, physical and virtual. This leads to less recognition of this important work and sometimes duplication of efforts.

The Global Partnership offers a platform to represent the activities of its members and for burgeoning data collaboratives to attract input, resources, and partners, while offering regular updates about progress.
