About this Event

Dear colleague,

The World Bank, UN Statistics Division, Sustainable Development Solutions Network and Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data are working together on a new initiative to scale up the use of timely data to complement official statistics for monitoring progress on the SDGs and providing data for decision making.

Too much of our data is out-of-date, and too many people are missing from the numbers. There is an urgent need for more accurate, timely, and comprehensive data to make the SDGs an actionable framework for sustainable development that can drive policies and programs in real time for all people.

We are at an inflection point in our quest for better data, with an opportunity to scale up the use of timely data for decision making in governments, UN agencies, civil society, private sector partners and donors. The ‘Real-time Data for the SDGs’ initiative aims to increase the use of robust methods and tools that improve the timeliness, availability, and quality of SDG data through collaboration and partnership, technical and capacity support, and information sharing. To achieve this, we are building collaborations with governments, civil society, the private sector and academia, supported by development partners and a strong advocacy and communications drive.

We would like to invite you to a closed round table meeting on the sidelines of the HLPF, to discuss this initiative, get feedback and advice, and explore possibilities for partnership and collaboration. The meeting will be at the Ford Foundation on July 18th, from 1.30-3.30pm. A light lunch will be provided.

Please rsvp by July 8th. If you have questions please contact Alan Hollis (ahollis@data4sdgs.org). We look forward to seeing you there.

Best wishes,

Francesca Perucci
