IRDR partner, the International Research Center of Big Data for Sustainable Development Goals (CBAS) is conducting an expert survey in response to the UN‘s call for ideas, opinions and inputs for a Global Digital Compact. In his report “Our Common Agenda”, the UN Secretary-General proposed the Global Digital Compact, which is to be finalized and agreed upon at the Summit of the Future in 2023 to improve global digital cooperation.
CBAS is therefore initiating this process of consultation to seek expert advice on the idea of a global project working towards improving recognition, visibility and accessibility of Digital Public Goods to improve global evaluation and assessment of SDG indicators. The scope of this consultation is to shape a broad conceptual framework based on the experiences of experts working in international initiatives, projects, and organizations to help identify relevant opportunities and challenges.
The opinions of the experts during this round of consultation will subsequently be submitted to the UN for consideration under the UN Global Digital Compact with due recognition of all participating organizations and experts.
