BETTER DATA. BETTER DECISIONS. BETTER LIVES.

A global network using data to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals - improving lives, fighting inequality, and promoting environmental sustainability.

Who We Are

The Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data is a global network working together to ensure the new opportunities of the data revolution are used to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.  

Our Community

Our hundreds of partners from governments, the private sector, and civil society organizations are joining forces to take action, galvanize political commitment, build trust, and spur innovation in the booming data ecosystems of the 21st century.

Our Impact

Since our founding in 2015, our network has improved data to monitor and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, created incentives for new commitments to fund and share data, and enabled knowledge-sharing, bringing partners together to make change.

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. Achieving and monitoring the SDGs requires the partnership of governments, the private sector, civil society, and citizens alike. It will require unprecedented amounts of data to ensure we leave a better planet for future generations.
