DG is pleased to announce the digital publication of our 2019 Annual Report, Building Data Ecosystems: Removing Barriers & Connecting Users.
In 2019, DG worked to bridge gaps in data use and availability, link local- and national-level data systems, and connect policymakers, partners, and citizens to the information they need to support stronger, more informed decision making.
Building on two decades of technical and programmatic expertise, we are moving into our 20th year with strong momentum behind each of our new and continued initiatives. This year, we leveraged our 2018-2021 Strategic Vision in the agriculture, extractives, gender, and inclusive programming spaces, with a diverse mix of new multi-year partnerships and initiatives.
