A World That Counts: Mobilising The Data Revolution for Sustainable Development.

Partnerships for the Goals

The report is the work of the UN Secretary-General’s Independent Expert Advisory Group on the Data Revolution for Sustainable Development. The group consisting of over 20 international experts was asked by the UN Secretary General to propose ways to improve data for achieving and monitoring sustainable development.

The report highlights two big global challenges: the challenge of invisibility, for instance gaps in what we know and when we know it: and the challenge of inequality, including the gaps between those who know and those who do not know what they need to know make their own decisions.
