Digitalisation and innovation

Innovations in data, such as advances in data science, artificial intelligence and new data sources can all greatly contribute to sustainable development by filling gaps and increasing the granularity of data. To ensure that innovation benefits everyone, low and middle-income countries also need access to the same tools and opportunities to collect and use the right data to achieve their development goals.

PARIS21 partners with countries to build and share knowledge and tools to advance innovation and digitalisation in statistical production. Programmes such as the Gender Data Lab (GDL) and Data Science Mentorship are carefully tailored to suit country contexts and capacities, through these, PARIS21 is striving to achieve better and more accessible data.
