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

The Tanzania Data Lab is a data science hub in Dar es Salaam that has come out of a partnership between the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) and the United States President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). Working under the umbrella of the Data Collaboratives for Local Impact (DCLI) MCC/PEPFAR partnership, the dLab is at the forefront of building a data-driven ecosystem in Tanzania – at a national level and among individuals - by working concurrently to augment the demand for data, increase the supply of it, and improve local technical capacity.

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