Lilianne Ploumen, Dutch Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation, joined us for the first of ODI's #GlobalChallenges 2016 event series on how to ensure the Sustainable Development Goals leave no one behind.
SDG 1 aims ‘to end poverty in all its forms everywhere’ by 2030. Following its adoption, on 21 October, we organised a day-long event to launch case studies on pro-poor growth, discuss new World Bank poverty numbers and reflect on how data gaps matter.
September marked the end of the Millennium Development Goals and the launch of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We held a debate on the first steps needed to prioritise efforts to move beyond the status quo and launched a new flagship report outlining projections for each of the SDGs.
We held the UK launch of the flagship report 'The data revolution: finding the missing millions', with a panel debate on the data revolution, the importance of data for development and how the data revolution can be used to help the world's poorest people.
This three-day festival brought together more than 300 key actors working on development data, hailing from governments, international organisations, civil society, academia and the technology sector. Catch up with the event via the social stream.
