The World Bank’s Development Data Group (DECDG): Inviting applications for ‘Collaborative Data Innovations for Sustainable Development’ to support innovative collaborations for data production, dissemination, and use.

Funding brief: The World Bank’s Development Data Group (DECDG), in collaboration with the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data (GPSDD), is interested in supporting innovative collaborations for data production, dissemination, and use. The collaborations should take place in low-income countries and lower-middle-income countries, and be directed towards sustainable development generally, and linked to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in particular.

This initiative is supported by the World Bank’s Trust Fund for Statistical Capacity Building (TFSCB) with financing from the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development (DFID), the Government of Korea and the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade of Ireland.

This call has been issued to target improvements where needs are continuous or recurrent, and where innovations can be readily adapted to other regions and sectors. They are interested in projects that result in data or methods which allow data to be produced faster; in a more cost effective manner; at a higher resolution or granularity; or address data gaps. Our ultimate goal is to encourage collaboration, experimentation, learning and capacity development in the field of sustainable development data.

● Scaling local data for impact: We are looking for innovations, which have an established proof of concept, and will provide more detailed, disaggregated, in-depth information to benefit local decision-making that can be replicated in other regions of the same country, or in a similar setting in a different country.
● Fostering synergies between the communities of non-official data and official statistics: They are looking for collaborations which take advantage of the relative strengths and responsibilities of official (i.e., governmental) and non-official (e.g., private sector, civil society, social enterprises and academia) actors in the data ecosystem, and which can build lasting links between them.
