Decisions based on data can greatly improve people’s lives. Data can uncover patterns, unexpected relationships and market trends, making it possible to address previously intractable problems and leverage hidden opportunities. On the other hand, data can worsen the digital divide –the data poor, who leave no digital trail because they have limited access, are most at risk from exclusion from services, opportunities and rights, as are those who lack a digital ID, for instance.
Governments can use data more creatively to help tackle key global challenges, such as situational awareness, service delivery, eliminating extreme poverty, promoting shared prosperity, or mitigating the effects of climate change. The first step is developing appropriate guidelines for data sharing and use, and for anonymizing personal data. All Government departments face the challenge of safely extracting value from data to improve service delivery in the same way that private companies have learned to do for profit.
