Who We Are

The Data for Change Foundation incubates and accelerates innovative data projects to help low- and middle-income countries reduce poverty, advance gender equality, combat climate change, and strengthen data governance and accountability. We are based in Geneva, Switzerland.

How we got started & why we do what we do

The Data for Change Foundation was founded by the OECD-hosted PARIS21, together with the National Statistician of Switzerland and the Swiss Law Firm MME Legal to accelerate the latest innovations in data and statistics for better lives for all.
