Using Data to Improve Lives

How can sharing data make humanitarian response more efficient and effective, thereby supporting states in achieving the SDGs, becoming more resilient, and recovering faster from crises? The OCHA Centre for Humanitarian Data was established to increase the use and impact of data in humanitarian response. How can making data easier to find, share, and use improve the efficiency and effectiveness of humanitarian response, and in turn the likelihood of achieving the SDGs?
