Random readings on society, politics and change – Jorge Carrillo
The report highlights two big global challenges for the current state of data: (1) The challenge of invisibility (gaps in what we know from data, and when we find out); and (2) The challenge of inequality (gaps between those who with and without information, and what they need to know make their own decisions). The IEAG report makes specific recommendations on how to address these challenges, calling for a UN-led effort to mobilise the data revolution for sustainable development including fostering and promoting innovation to fill data gaps; mobilising resources to overcome inequalities between developed and developing countries and between data-poor and data-rich people; and leadership and coordination to enable the data revolution to play its full role in the realisation of sustainable development.
