Together, we aim to show how more and better data can help deliver the Sustainable Development Goals and improve lives worldwide.
However, to tap the full potential of #DataForChange, we need to reorient investment towards strengthening the production and use of data and statistics.
The campaign is organised by the Partnership in Statistics for Development in the 21st Century (PARIS21).
PARIS21 promotes the better use and production of statistics throughout the developing world. Its main objective is to help low- and middle-income countries achieve national and international development goals and reduce poverty. PARIS21 facilitates statistical capacity development, advocates for the integration of reliable data in decision making, and co-ordinates donor support to statistics.
The campaign is financed by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida).
Sida is Sweden’s government agency for development cooperation. Through cooperation with civil society, multilateral organisations, public agencies and the private sector, Sida works for sustainable development and help create conditions for people living in poverty and oppression to improve their living conditions.
The campaign aims to raise awareness in the run-up to the 2021 United Nations World Data Forum.
The event brings together data experts and users who aim to spur data innovation, mobilise high-level political and financial support for data, and build a pathway to better data for sustainable development.
