In July 2018, a committed group of 10 partners launched the Inclusive Data Charter (IDC) during the High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development. Facilitated by the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data, the vision and principles were developed by a task team of representatives from governments (across four continents), UN Agencies, and civil society organizations.
The Inclusive Data Charter's aim is to advance the availability and use of inclusive and disaggregated data so that governments and organizations better understand, address, and monitor the needs of marginalized people, and ensure no one is left behind. Our goal by 2030 is to have more specific data that helps allocate resources effectively for those who need them most.
Momentum for inclusive data
Since 2018, the IDC has tripled in size, garnered commitments from more than 30 diverse Champions, and supported them in accelerating and deepening progress.
Inclusive Data Charter Champions produce action plans to describe the concrete steps they will take to realize the vision and principles of the IDC.

Once you lift the rock and you have the data and the evidence, then you know what the scale of the problem is. The Inclusive Data Charter has enabled those kinds of ‘lifting-the-rock moments’ in a really positive sense. More governments and organizations are continuing to sign up and commit to the charter.

The IDC has been a catalyst for IDMC’s work to advance inclusive and disaggregated data on internally displaced people, inspiring us to take stock of data gaps in order to provide an inclusive, more precise, and comprehensive picture of internal displacement.
