Priorities as a partner of the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data

Both, Ecuador and the Global Partnership share the same vision: a world where the opportunities of the data revolution are available for all humanity, as a force for improving life for all the people, everywhere. Ecuador has a strong commitment to sustainable development and the 2030 Agenda, and has made important efforts towards achieving it.

We believe our adhesion to the Global Partnership will constitute, above all, an opportunity to grow, to learn and to improve. Furthermore, Ecuador wants to make important contributions through its experience.

INEC would be pleased to participate as focal point of Ecuador and support the development of a data ecosystem for sustainable development.
