The Data for Development Festival is an in-person gathering of the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data’s network of 280 partner organizations - a powerful coalition of changemakers representing governments, businesses, charities, research institutions, development banks, and United Nations agencies. Together we form a truly global network using data to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals - improving lives, fighting inequality, and promoting environmental sustainability. This will be the inaugural global meeting, with subsequent meetings taking place every two years, in a different country each time.

Over the course of three days, 300 representatives from the UK and around the world will come together to discuss the challenges and opportunities of using data innovation and data-led technology to create a better world. It is an exciting chance to generate new partnerships, identify opportunities for collaboration, and explore how emerging technologies can be leveraged for social good.

The event is co-organized by the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data and the following members of the Global Partnership: the United Kingdom Department for International Development (DfID) and its Office for National Statistics (ONS), Southern Voice, Open Institute, CARTO, Datavized, Development Initiatives, the Open Data Institute, RELX Group, Group on Earth Observations (GEO), the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), the World Bank, Development Gateway, and Centro de Pensamiento Estratégico Internacional (Cepei).

It is co-hosted by the UK Government, DfID, and its Office of National Statistics. The data festival will have wide international participation from a range of stakeholders from government, civil society, academia, NGOs, and the private sector.
