Development Gateway is proud to be a champion of the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data (GPSDD).
Launching today in New York City, GPSDD is comprised of governments, companies, civil society groups, and international organizations from around the world that share a vision for using data to help achieve sustainable development.
Specifically, the Partnership envisions a world in which timely, accurate, and high quality data play a significant role in achieving and measuring sustainable and inclusive development; in which all public data are pen by default, with appropriate safeguards to ensure human rights and security.
The Partnership seeks to amplify existing efforts around the post-2015 Data Revolution by securing new investments in data, promoting trusted data principles, and connecting data to action. Specifically, the Partnership seeks to further the following outcomes over the coming months:
- The initiation and strengthening of inclusive domestic initiatives that improve the capacities to generate, share, and use statistics and data for sustainable development
- The organization of global, multi-stakeholder collaborative to fill information gaps and produce dynamic visualizations
- The development and promotion of international norms and guidelines to harness the Data Revolution
- The convening of thematic, regional, and global for a to foster commitments, collaboration, and innovation
As an international nonprofit dedicated to turning data into accessible and useful information, DG looks forward to working closely with other GPSDD members in the pursuit of “a world in which the right data is available to the right people at the right time in the right ways to help make the right decisions in support of sustainable development.”
Digital Public Goods Alliance designated DG’s Open Contracting Portal as a digital public good in September 2022. The Portal provides procurement analytics that can be used to improve procurement efficiency and, in turn, reduce corruption and increase impact.
Representatives from Development Gateway: an IREX Venture (DG) will be attending the African Green Revolution Forum (AGRF) from September 5-9 in Kigali, Rwanda to highlight two projects: the Visualizing Insights on African Agriculture (VIFAA) project and the Farmer-Centric Data Governance Models project.
In Episode 2 of "Data…for What?!," a podcast series from Development Gateway: an IREX Venture (DG) which explores our new strategic plan, Josh Powell met with experts from DG and IREX to discuss DG’s expansion into the education, media and disinformation, and youth sectors. The conversations explore the most pressing challenges and greatest opportunities for data and technology to positively impact these sectors and discuss how these trends are likely to play out in the years ahead. Based on these trends, the experts explain the unique fit for DG’s skills and specific opportunities for collaboration that align with the vision of DG’s partnership with IREX, which has a long and successful history working in each sector.
