The Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data supports partners at the national and sub-national levels in Colombia to develop and implement whole-of-government, multi-stakeholder data roadmaps for sustainable development.

In May 2017, the Global Partnership, together with NASA and the Colombian National Administrative Department of Statistics (DANE - Departamento Administrativo Nacional de Estadística), co-organized a workshop in Bogota, Colombia ‘Towards Integration of National Statistics and Earth Observations for SDG Monitoring.’
