Inclusive Data Charter
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development commits to leaving no one behind. In order to fulfill this pledge, we need more granular data to understand the needs and experiences of the most marginalized in society, and we must ensure that resources are being allocated to maximize outcomes for the poorest. Currently, too little data is routinely disaggregated.
While there are many technical and methodological challenges inherent in improving data disaggregation, some of the largest barriers are political and financial. The Inclusive Data Charter (IDC) was developed by a task team of GPSDD partners to mobilize political commitments and meaningful actions to deepen disaggregation. The IDC is a multi-stakeholder mechanism with a core group of governments, international organizations, and civil society organizations that will sign on as the first champions. It will launch publicly in July 2018 at the High-Level Political Forum and then broaden support and deepen action over time as other partners sign on.
