BACKGROUND 

Data is rapidly gaining recognition as a valuable asset for international cooperation, offering critical insights across diverse domains such as humanitarian, crisis prevention and addressing climate change.

Within the landscape of the UN Secretary General's Strategy on New Technology, Roadmap for Digital Cooperation, Data Strategy, and most recently Our Common Agenda, a notable emphasis has been placed on recognizing data's central role as a strategic asset that extends throughout the entirety of the UN's work and beyond.

 

Current UN initiatives, including the Global Digital Compact, establish the groundwork for collaborative data endeavors that align with the ambitions of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Data Innovation Lab is part of these processes and provides an innovative platform poised to harness the potential of data for a more inclusive foreign policy, international cooperation, and sustainable development.
