To ensure what comes after the Millennium Development Goals, which end in 2015, is measurable and realistic, the post-2015 agenda has called for a “data revolution”. The revolution, it is hoped, will enhance the quality and accessibility of information available to all stakeholders to monitor economic, social and environmental performance at the national and global levels.
To contribute to this effort, the Centre for Policy Dialogue (CPD) and The North-South Institute (NSI) in association with the network Southern Voice on Post-MDG International Development Goals (Southern Voice) and the Partnership for African Social and Governance Research (PASGR), are leading a new initiative: The Post-2015 Data Test.
The aim of this initiative is to unpack the data revolution at the country level through an examination of data quality surrounding post-2015 goals, targets and indicators in 8 case-study countries: Bangladesh, Canada, Ghana, Peru, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Tanzania and Turkey.
