Everyone has a role to play in harnessing the power of data for public good. This Data Strategy identifies those roles and the opportunities to use data in reducing disaster risks and losses. It spells out how UNDRR, its partners and stakeholders can access, analyse and share data for risk-informed sustainable development, and climate and humanitarian action. The new data strategy promotes capabilities in:
- Governing data – Policies for managing data as a strategic asset and as a shared global resource ensure the desired level of quality and utility for implementing the Sendai Framework at all levels.
- Managing data – A common and consistent set of tools and practices will meet UNDRR’s own data needs for informed decision-making, and those of stakeholders, applications and processes throughout the community.
- Analysing data – Stronger organizational business intelligence will make data analytics an organization-wide competence in our daily work
