The Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data supports country partners at the national and sub-national levels in Kenya to develop and implement whole-of-government, multi-stakeholder data roadmaps for sustainable development.

Kenya hosted the High-Level Meeting on Data for Development in Africa in June 2017, where leaders announced that they will champion the development of an Intergovernmental Network on Open Data for Agriculture and Nutrition, that will nurture an inclusive multi-stakeholder ecosystem to boost capacity of small scale farmers to use data to improve productivity, increase youth engagement in agri-business, and strengthen capacities of statistical departments in Ministries of Agriculture by increasing financial allocations and human capacity. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) will collaborate with the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries and Kenya’s budding data lab at Strathmore University to provide real-time information on crop types, agricultural insurance, and weather.

There are a number of other data innovation activities currently supporting sustainable development in Kenya. See below for blogs, partner activities, initiatives, and resources related to sustainable development data in Kenya.
