Strategy Guidance Note on the Promotion of Public Sector Data Sharing

United Nations Committee of Experts on Public Administration
Start Date: Dec 2020 — End Date: Jan 2021

CREC developed a Strategy Guidance Note and related global case studies on data sharing as a principle of sound policymaking which can contribute to strengthening the effectiveness of institutions. The United Nations Committee of Experts on Public Administration (CEPA) has developed a set of principles of effective governance for sustainable development to provide practical, expert guidance to interested countries in a broad range of governance challenges associated with implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The CREC guidance note addresses the promotion of public sector data sharing, including the ways in which data sharing can increase public service delivery, improve reliability, increase efficiency, and increase collaborative government. The note is intended for practical use by policymakers in centers of Government, ministries of finance, planning and public administration. The strategy guidance and related case studies are also to become part of a toolkit on the principle of sound policymaking for use in online facilitated workshops in Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean.
