POWER OF DATA: HIGH IMPACT INITIATIVE TO UNLOCK THE DATA DIVIDEND
At the heart of the High Impact Initiative is the launch and support of cutting edge national data partnerships, announced by an initial group of 15 countries across Africa, Latin America, and Europe. These partnerships will bring together governments, tech companies, civil society, donors and others to use data ethically to revolutionize decision making, accelerate digital transformation, and drive new economic opportunities for a more equal and sustainable world.
The High Impact Initiative on the Power of Data calls on world leaders to systematically invest in better data for development and deliver the SDGs. We can’t achieve what we can’t measure – and this initiative is designed to help accelerate the political and financial commitments necessary for countries to unlock the data dividend – UNDP is a founding member.
It is co-led by UNDP, UNFPA, UN DESA, UNICEF, World Bank, Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data (‘GPSDD’) and the Chief Statisticians of the United Nations System (CCS-UNS) – together with: Bangladesh, Botswana, Cabo Verde, Colombia, Costa Rica, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Dominican Republic, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Paraguay, Rwanda, Somalia, Togo, Uruguay and the UK.
