Delivering on the Data Revolution

Recommendations of a CGD working group, Delivering on the Data Revolution in Sub-Saharan Africa, in collaboration with the Nairobi-based African Population and Health Research Center (APHRC) were reflected in the UN’s A World That Counts report and the OECD’s Informing a Data Revolution roadmap. The working group’s recommendations were also a core input to, and echoed in, the Africa Data Consensus, adopted by the Conference of African Ministers of Finance, Planning and Economic Development.
