Christian Aid's commitment to data-driven decision-making and advocacy has been a cornerstone of its operations since becoming an IDC champion in 2019. 

Central to their ethos is the belief that data can drive positive change proactively and responsibly by effectively targeting root causes and informing strategic decisions.

At the heart of Christian Aid's data strategy is the systematic collection of Sex, Age, and Disability Disaggregated (SADD) data. This approach ensures that their programs are inclusive, responsive, and accountable to the diverse needs of the communities they serve.

Building upon this foundation, Christian Aid is implementing its Inclusive Data Charter (IDC) Action Plan, which was updated at the end of 2023. This comprehensive plan outlines specific goals aimed at enhancing the organization's capacity for inclusive data collection, responsible data management, advocacy, and project design:

Their IDC action plan goals are:

  1. Provide practical support to country teams and partners with inclusive data collection.

  2. Increase the capacity of country teams and partners in responsible data management.

  3. Advocacy and policy are evidenced by inclusive data.

  4. Incorporate the principles of the IDC, making them evident in project design and inception.
