The Bern Network on Financing Data for Development has just released a new paper that outlines a new Data Financing Facility to close the data gaps needed to monitor SDG progress.

Launched at the High-Level Political Forum in New York today, the paper highlights the issue that today, almost a third of the way to 2030, data to measure and track the SDGs are largely not available. This is preventing ‘leave no one behind’ from becoming a reality. By doubling financial support to statistics to 0.7% of ODA per year, we could achieve significant progress.

A global alliance for more and better financing for development data should work to support better identification of needs, improved investment proposals, better co-ordination at the country level, and joined-up domestic and external financial support for low-capacity countries. Within it, a Data Financing Facility could provide complementary funding and convening support and reinforce incentives for better financing for data and statistical systems.
