Effective Data Sharing

Recent technological advancements have exponentially increased the availability of data and the ability to process and draw analytical insights from such data. Despite this, a lack of quality, timely data has been identified as one of the biggest hurdles to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.

A study conducted by Athena Infonomics, commissioned by the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data, investigates the landscape of data-sharing partnerships and identifies the key drivers of success. The study, entitled Effective Data Sharing: Beyond Platforms, focuses on multi-stakeholder partnerships where three or more organisations collaborate on data collection, sharing, and/or analysis to address a societal challenge. Using primary and secondary research, the study explores the enabling environment and key operational factors that contribute to the establishment, sustainability, and success of data-sharing partnerships.
