Data Action Portfolio

The Data Strategy of the Secretary-General for Action by Everyone, Everywhere is a call to action for a data-driven transformation to build ecosystems that unlock the potential of global action on the SDGs. Data drives all aspects of the UN’s work and its power harnessed responsibly is critical to global agendas.

UNICC Data and Analytics team focuses on systematically delivering use cases across our partner Agencies, leveraging the Secretary-General’s priorities and stakeholder needs.
