Dubai hosted the second UN World Data Forum yesterday with 1,500 data experts from more than 100 countries. Why is this important? The annual event acts as a global platform to better understand how we can all use data to help meet the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Key topics discussed include the data challenges and solutions for reaching vulnerable children. When children are counted, they are more likely to be included in government programs which helps to ensure they grow up healthy, safely and better-prepared to contribute positively to society.
Congratulations Dubai on driving forward the global SDGs.
