In collaboration with the Global Partnership on Sustainable Development Data and Overseas Development Institute, UNDP convened a Global Workshop on Data Ecosystems for Sustainable Development on 20-21 June 2016 in New York.

The workshop brought together 74 participants representing diverse data stakeholder communities across governments, international organizations, civil society, think tanks, academia and the private sector. It provided a platform for further engagement with key stakeholders in the context of UNDP's Data Ecosystem Mapping project, in an effort to capture their experiences, perspectives and challenges in using or producing data, and to identify synergies and opportunities for innovative collaboration across countries and constituencies.

Participants from the six pilot countries were joined by key data revolution advocates and champions, including representatives of academic institutions, civil society groups, think tanks, philanthropic organizations, the private sector and national planning and statistical departments from several other countries. In addition, representatives from non-pilot countries that have accrued knowledge and experience in decentralized and disaggregated data collection and analysis; several UN staff members engaged in data work from both New York and country offices; and members of the diplomatic community at United Nations (UN) Headquarters were in attendance.
