Six years on from the creation of the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data, more than 280 partners are actively involved in our network, catalyzing and sharing progress that has improved lives around the world. Bringing together organizations from different sectors to support each other and achieve impact together is the reason why we were founded. 

Itad’s recent evaluation of our work concluded: "GPSDD has made the biggest contribution to the way in which data is used to achieve the SDGs through helping partners utilize data in support of decision making... GPSDD has made a number of notable contributions to the way data is used to monitor the SDGs, including through using satellite and earth observations data to monitor environmental indicators in several countries."

This country engagement strategy sets out how we will build on the evaluation findings and from our own learning to increase the scale of our impact through our work with countries, increasing data use to accelerate progress on the SDGs.
