The Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data's data roadmaps support countries at the national and sub-national levels to develop and implement whole-of-government, multi-stakeholder data ecosystems for sustainable development. Our data roadmap process helps align existing national plans, activities, and priorities to further strengthen data ecosystems and enable data-driven decision-making for sustainable development.

The data roadmaps help enable the use of real-time, dynamic, disaggregated data to achieve and monitor the Sustainable Development Goals, bridge data gaps, and improve capacities to generate, share, and use data. The Global Partnership works closely with partner countries to better understand challenges and opportunities on the road to harnessing the data revolution for sustainable development.

The Global Partnership's Data4SDGs Toolbox supports country-led efforts to develop and implement data roadmaps for sustainable development.

 

Current data roadmap countries include:

  • Colombia
  • Ghana
  • Kenya
  • Philippines
  • Senegal
  • Sierra Leone
  • Tanzania
  • United States
