Putting Data at the Heart of the Leave No One Behind Agenda: Areas for Action

Reducing poverty and improving equity
Posted Sep 30, 2021 | Development Initiatives, Deborah Hardoon

Good data is vital for ending poverty, but ways to maximise its benefits while mitigating risks and limitations to ensure it is fit for purpose, often require clarification. Deborah Hardoon reasons in her blog for Development Initiatives that while data alone cannot mitigate the effects of COVID-19 and other crises, it can be used to inform policies to address them and target marginalised groups in society. Reaching the target to end extreme poverty by 2030 is unlikely, with poverty still increasing in some countries, particularly those affected by conflict and fragility. Their vulnerabilities require a dynamic understanding of risk, poverty and resilience – for which good data is essential.
