News/Events, Subnational

As an international data and statistical community, we have witnessed the implications of gaps in data and digital access amidst the Covid-19 global crisis. Due to lockdown restrictions, many national governments and development partners have lost access to data sources, leaving local communities directly responsible for primary data collection and use.

Decisions continue to be made at national and local levels that will impact crisis response and recovery. DG’s Principles for Subnational Data Use (in English and French) provide good-practice guidance for designing programs that strengthen community demand, supply, and use of data to drive better outcomes – while preparing communities to be more resilient to future challenges.

Given the changed global context, how has our thinking around the Subnational Principles shifted accordingly?

On October 15 at 9:00-10:00AM EST, DG is hosting a virtual conversation on the sidelines of the 2020 Virtual UN World Data Forum, focused on strengthening local data and statistical capacities moving forward.
