The project “Accelerating data collaboration: from local successes to global scale” aims to build and test a good practice toolkit for national/local data innovation and collaboration – based on experimentations from the ground, developed in a lean and agile manner, open by default and easily adaptable to different country contexts. As countries struggle to manage - let alone harness - increasing quantities of data, this project will address the pressing need for robust, needs-driven data collaboration & governance with people at its core.??
Leveraging its global footprint and local presence, especially the Accelerator Labs in 91 countries, who have generated significant track records and growing portfolios of fast-track digital and data projects, UNDP will deploy a human-centered approach to develop a good practice toolkit for national and local data collaboration that is co-created with target countries and piloted in parallel. The toolkit will be focused on data collaboration for the use of non-traditional data with a special focus on private sector data. Equitable access to government services, a strict “no harm” policy and a focus on prevention of data biases are a genuine part of the project. This partnership approach will ensure that inclusion is not sacrificed for speed but is at the heart of the project.
