The Role of Data in Sustainable Development

To have a chance to achieve the SDGs, Data Must Be Made Accessible and Usable

  • A huge increase in the capacity of many governments, institutions and individuals is needed to deliver and use this data.

    It is critical to implement education programs aimed at improving capacity and data literacy to break down barriers between people and data

  • There are huge and growing inequalities in access to data and information and in the ability to use it.

    Existing gaps can only be overcome through new investments and the strengthening of capacities.

Case Study

Sudan Evidence Base Programme in Partnership with the World Bank & DFID
Thanks to Tuva, data science has never been more accessible or inclusive -- it's an interactive, practical, and fun-to-use data literacy process, which guides users (including and particularly unseasoned, non-statisticians) to explore, analyze, and draw conclusions from data.

We've deployed it to great effect in Sudan, and I believe it to be profoundly valuable for any development initiative which prioritizes evidence-based decision-making to improve the quality of life for the poor, the marginalized, and the underserved.
