Southern Voice Partners in Unpacking Data Revolution

Southern Voice on Post-MDG International Development Goals, in partnership with the North South Institute in association with the Centre for Policy Dialogue, has launched an initiative, “Unpacking the Data Revolution at the Country Level: An Early Examination of Candidate Post-2015 Goals, Targets and Indicators.” The initiative aims to apply a select set of candidate post-2015 goals, targets and indicators to a number of low, middle and high income countries. In doing so, it will assess the adequacy of data available for measuring post-2015 progress at the country level, seeking to inform debates and decisions on the architecture and priorities of the “data revolution”. It will also identify opportunities and challenges that may arise from a universal, country-relevant post-2015 framework.  Furthermore, it seeks to enhance the capacity of Southern think-tanks to contribute to the global policy processes shaping the post-2015 agenda, while also ensuring that the global processes are informed by country-level realities.
