In this segment, RELX’s Global Head of Corporate Responsibility, Dr Márcia Balisciano, talks to Dr Claire Melamed, CEO of the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data.
One of the Resource Centre’s key partners, the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data brings together several hundred members, representing governments, the private sector and civil society, to harness and leverage data and data technology towards achieving the SDGs.
Based in London, Claire heads up a global team spread across 6 countries. She was previously Managing Director of the Overseas Development Institute, and in 2014, worked in the office of the UN Secretary General, writing the report of the Independent Expert Advisory Group on the Data Revolution, entitled “A World That Counts”.
"We say that every life counts, but we still don't count every life", she says in her advocacy to use the knowledge provided by data to improve lives and protect the planet.
Claire serves on a number of Boards and advisory groups for institutions including the UK Office of National Statistics Data Science Campus, Government of UAE Task Force on Global Data Commons, Overseas Development Institute Human Mobility Initiative, and Mo Ibrahim Foundation Governance Index.
