Priorities as a partner of the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data

ESCAP commits to promote and advocate for collaboration and partnerships between public, private, and civil sector data producers and to facilitate south-south, north-south, and triangular cooperation to accelerate production of new, improved, and timely data for sustainable development.

Establishing partnerships and cooperation arrangements between public, private, and civil sector data producers are necessary for strengthening and improving national data and statistical eco-systems, increasing data access and use, and resource mobilization to harness the data revolution.
