United Nations Foundation

For The Global Partnership For Sustainable Development Data

Overview
The United Nations Foundation serves as the institutional host of the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data. The Partnership brings together government, private-sector, civil society, and international institutions to harness new and traditional sources of data to better understand and address development challenges. This grant will support the implementation of the Partnership’s strategic plan, which has four goals: (a) drive political change, elevating the importance of data production, access, and use for decision making; (b) promote the use of new technologies and data sources to improve government decision making; (c) embed standards of interoperability into global frameworks so that multiple data types can be used together to address common development challenges; and (d) scale up the use of timely and robust data for Sustainable Development Goal monitoring.

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.
