Governments and development agencies around the world are increasingly moving away from old models of problem-solving, and searching for new, more networked models of resilience.

This guide will provide practical guidance in designing a data innovation project, as well as tools for recruiting allies both within and outside of your organization.

Data innovation is a vital element of this effort. Identifying and integrating faster, more detailed insights into development programme planning processes can lead to better-targeted responses and more efficient resource allocation. Data innovation is also part of reaching the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Effective data collection, analysis, and monitoring can help policymakers to course-correct programmes and policies more quickly, leading to cost efficiencies and greater returns on investments, as well as empower communities ultimately helping to achieve the goals.
