What we do
We leverage the power of data to change minds, policies, and lives for the better. Our aim is to ensure that data can be put to good use to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
Our vision is that of a fair data future that:
- includes and represents all people in data,
- ensures that data is governed fairly and safely,
- supports access to the data that enables timely decision making for policymaking and humanitarian action.
We bring experts from multiple disciplines and sectors together to advance these causes.
Our mission is to help the world use better data for better decisions and better lives.
Our work targets the barriers to leveraging data for sustainable development, something that can only be achieved by working collaboratively across sectors and geographies. Our network of more than 700 partners are united by a shared vision of achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
