As a mission-driven nonprofit, Development Gateway (DG) works to ensure governments, organizations, and citizens can access, understand, and apply data to achieve sustainable development outcomes.

DG partners with 35+ governments and numerous development organizations to create tools, skills and processes for data-driven decision-making. DG has extensive in-house technology, data and training expertise, and also studies how to enable development data use. DG works across development sectors with special expertise in open government, citizen engagement and results-based management.

Priorities as a partner of the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data

To develop the right tools, training, and processes to support governments’ management and use of data to achieve the 2030 Agenda. Through new and existing partnerships with governments, international organizations, and civil society, we pledge to encourage data-driven decision-making at international, national, and local levels; tap country capacity to do so; and to include citizen voices in this process.

What Do We Know About the Value of Data?

There is strong rhetorical consensus that better data are a prerequisite to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and leaving no one behind, but the demand for better data has not translated into corresponding growth in funding. To confront this challenge, this paper seeks to better understand what we know about the value of data. How have economists and other researchers attempted to measure the value of data and how well do they do at painting the picture of what data are really worth?
