DECADE OF ACTION
At the heart of the 2030 Agenda are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. For the Decade of Action, we will leverage the UN family’s data potential everywhere we can and aim to mobilize governments, civil society and businesses.
Climate change is already affecting every country on every continent, impacting lives and disrupting economies, both now and in the future. We will put emphasis on employing data and analytics for urgent climate action.
25 years after the historic Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing, where the Beijing Platform for Action was agreed upon, full gender equality around the world is still not a reality. Together with global partners, we will build better gender data and analytics capabilities.
HUMAN RIGHTS AND RULE OF LAW
Powered by the SG’s Call to Action on Human Rights, we will form global coalitions for human rights-based approaches to data, fight hate speech online while upholding freedoms and strengthen human rights monitoring.
PEACE AND SECURITY
We will leverage data and analytics for the prevention, mediation and resolution of conflicts: for stronger analysis and recommendations, to deploy peacekeepers faster to where they are needed most, and to protect civilians and UN personnel.
GOVERNANCE AND ETHICS FOR THE FUTURE
In support of stronger global digital cooperation, we will help foster dialogue, the collaborative design and the implementation of data policies that advance the responsible human-rights-based use of data and drive innovation for people and planet.
To accelerate UN reform, we will foster centres of excellence that catalyze stronger data and analytics capabilities, help account for reform benefits, foster transparency, raise performance, and build resilient supply chains.
DATA PROTECTION AND PRIVACY
Building on our Data Protection and Privacy Principles, our ambition is to strengthen dialogue with public and private stakeholders, and champion data protection and privacy capacity in the UN family.
