The Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data (GPSDD), hosted at the UN Foundation, is a fast-growing, dynamic international partnership bringing together over 300 different organizations including governments, UN agencies, private companies, civil society organizations, and many others. We make connections and broker partnerships to address the problems of gaps in data production, poor data use, access, quality, and to work with stakeholders to fully harness the new opportunities of the data revolution in the service of sustainable development. We aim to link and align action, capacities and resources across geographies, sectors and data communities.
We are looking for a passionate and dynamic Policy Associate with strong research and writing skills who will help advance the GPSDD’s policy agenda, particularly around more and better financing for data. Working closely with the Senior Director of Policy and the secretariat team, the Associate will track debates on development data, identify opportunities where the GPSDD is uniquely positioned to contribute, and amplify partners’ work in support of global advocacy on data.
