United Nations Foundation

For A Learning Agenda For Public/private Data Partnerships

Overview
The Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data (GPSDD), hosted by the United Nations Foundation, engages with partners across sectors to broker partnerships that enable the production, sharing, and use of better data to drive better decisions and better lives for all. With this grant, GPSDD will work to increase government actors’ access to and use of privately held data by (a) improved governance, management skills, and capacity of government actors in focus countries to access and ultimately use privately held data; and (b) advanced learning on the pathways from strengthening governance and management capacity to smoother data access and increased data use. This grant will advance one of the goals under our Evidence-Informed Policymaking strategy, that governments use new and traditional forms of data to improve policy decision making and ultimately outcomes for people.

Grants to this Grantee
for the U.S. Climate Alliance  
The U.N. Foundation is the fiscal sponsor for the U.S. Climate Alliance, a bipartisan group of 24 U.S. states, led by their governors, committed to advancing leading-edge climate policies, including driving collaborative, multistate action that helps stimulate economic growth across multiple industries. Alliance states represent more than 60% of U.S. GDP, 55% of the U.S. population, and 40% of U.S. emissions. Recent analysis shows that the U.S. can reach its goal of reducing emissions by 50% by 2030 only through joint federal, state, and business action. (Substrategy: U.S. National Policy)
for improved data related to women’s economic empowerment  
With this project grant, the United Nations Foundation (UNF) will continue its work to analyze and compile existing data and identify data gaps related to key areas of women’s empowerment, as a core technical contribution to the Data 2X initiative announced by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in 2012. Leading a group of technical experts, UNF will identify data gaps that hinder gender-inclusive policy development. A near-term policy focus will be on establishing data requirements for the post-2015 international goal framework. With ongoing input from the advisory group, UNF will develop a plan of action that defines options for collecting and analyzing new and existing data for policy formulation and will identify opportunities for private-public sector engagement and collaboration.
