Welcome to the DI newsletter

July 2016
Welcome to the first newsletter since the launch of our new Organisational Strategy. Read on to learn about our new initiative exploring data on the poorest people globally and our new project on blended finance. We’ve launched a consultation on joined-up data standards and – in partnership with Open Institute – have been looking at how the Sustainable Development Goals are localised in Kenya.

The P20 initiative: Data to leave no one behind

The P20 initiative focuses on the people who are in the poorest 20% globally. It aims to track their progress and improve information about their lives through better, disaggregated data, ensuring that in efforts to tackle poverty no one is left behind.

Consultation: joined-up data standards

Working with our partners at Publish What You Fund, we’ve launched a consultation paper that aims to move the interoperability conversation on, from a discussion of the problems to a search for solutions to the challenge.

Development Data Hub 
Our Development Data Hub combines an extensive store of data on financial and resource flows with poverty, social and vulnerability indicators. It allows you to chart, map and compare data at the global, national and local levels.
