The Inclusive Data Charter aims to mobilize political support to improve the quality, quantity, availability, and financing of disaggregated data to support the 2030 Agenda’s ambition of leaving no one behind. Between now and 2030, the charter will act as a mechanism to spur countries and organizations to accelerate action on data disaggregation and encourage others to do the same.
