For Continuation Of Data2X, Including Big Data Pilots

Overview
This supplement supports big data pilots and partnership building activities of Data2X, a project to improve global gender data by connecting gender experts with large producers of data and organizations that establish data standards. With this grant, Data2X would expand its capacity as a coordinating body and platform for the execution of each of its six gender data partnerships, ranging from improved civil registration and vital statistics to better measurement of work and labor force participation. The Data2X secretariat, hosted at the United Nation Foundation, will technically guide and administer the work, which is intended to improve the availability, quality, and use of gender data for decision-making, as a part of the post-2015 framework and beyond.

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.
