Position Overview

The Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data (Global Partnership), hosted at the United Nations Foundation, is a dynamic international network bringing together over 700 partners including governments, international organizations, private companies, civil society organizations, and many others.

Our 2024-2030 strategy, Power of data: Knowledge and technology for sustainable development, is framed around our vision of a world where data and technology are driving sustainable and equitable development. Where individuals, organizations, and countries can mobilize the power of information to create the futures they want and need.

Our network has come together to:

  • Make inclusion the norm, putting people at the center of data production, sharing, and use so that their experience is visible, and the power of data is used to fight inequality.

  • Shape how data is governed, ensuring it is accountable to those whom the data is intended to serve.
