This session will explore potential political opportunities for filling urgent data gaps.  In an interactive format, panelists will provide valuable insights on whether creation of a new global partnership for development data could accelerate closing our many data gaps. How could it help with improving the statistical capacity in low-income countries; help establish better norms and standards; fill funding gaps; and promote more open data and expand data usage and data impact?
Cette séance permettra d’examiner des possibilités politiques de combler de façon urgente les lacunes dans les données. Les membres du groupe de discussion fourniront, dans un contexte interactif, leurs points de vue valables sur la possibilité que la création d’un nouveau partenariat à l’échelle mondiale pour le développement de données comble plus rapidement les nombreuses lacunes dans nos données. En quoi pourrait‑elle aider à améliorer la capacité statistique dans les pays à faible revenu, à établir de meilleures normes, à combler les déficits de financement, à promouvoir l’émission de données ouvertes ainsi qu’à élargir l’utilisation et l’incidence des données?
