WHAT IS DATASHIFT DOING?
DataShift with its partners are helping filling gaps and adding context for SDG indicators, particularly SDG 16.7.2: Ensure responsive, inclusive, participatory and representative decision-making at all levels. From January – June 2019, the initiative will be collecting quantitative and qualitative data on SDG indicator 16.7.2: Proportion of the population who believe decision-making is inclusive and responsive, by sex, age, disability and population group. The data will be used to inform the dialogues occurring around the July 2019 High-Level Political Forum Theme ‘Empowering people and ensuring inclusiveness and equality’. If you would like to be part of the SDG16.7.2 data process, please e-mail DataShift@CIVICUS.org.
It also collaborates with other actors to explore and promote the use of citizen-generated data, via a specific Task Team of the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data
