Global Data Policy

Fostering a more effective global conversation among development actors.

Using our work and lessons learned to inform and drive the data revolution.

As we continue to support institutions in their data strategy and policy formulation, we remain focused on their engagement with the global development community.

We aim to build peer learning processes around data strategies, structured around the OECD's Results Working Group meetings.

Over the next three years, we will work to facilitate these convenings, and to provide similar data strategy services to at least five additional development agencies and large INGOs. We will also continue to provide insights and contribution to the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data (GPSDD), Open Contracting Partnership (OCP), IATI, Joined-Up Data Standards (JUDS) and others, using our work and lessons learned to inform and drive the data revolution. 

Our organizational memberships and leadership, as members of the Technical Advisory Group (TAG) of GPSDD, demonstrate DG’s steadfast commitment to a transparent, data-driven aid community.
