Our partners sit at the heart of the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data's work. The strength of our network lies in the breadth and depth of partners’ expertise and engagement with each other, and the wider data for development community and agenda. 2020 tested that strength, and showed the power and adaptability of our network in overcoming unprecedented challenges.

This report highlights the various ways in which partners engaged with the Global Partnership and each other in the last year. In the face of the change and uncertainty, engagement amongst our partners has highlighted:

  • the strength of our virtual network
  • the feasibility and value of aggregating needs and solutions to deliver a range of partnerships
  • the need for innovation alongside strengthening foundational systems
  • the importance of sharing experiences, opportunities, and challenges for collective growth and benefit.
