Data to understand our current needs
Millions of data are generated and processed every day to help us better understand the world. Thus, each sector, organization or decision-maker has evidence for the formulation and implementation of strategies or development plans that benefit the entire population without leaving no one behind. How does data help us make better decisions for sustainable development?
Data is everywhere and is generated all the time, which is why, many times, this large amount of data is not processed and gets lost. In order to prevent this from happening, and to ensure that data is collected and analyzed, there are new applications and tools that, in addition to preventing records from being lost, allow the study of human behavior, global phenomena and progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals.
During the crisis generated by the COVID-19 pandemic, the challenges faced by children and adolescents in Colombia, one of the populations most affected by confinement, have been further reflected. Data has allowed us to better understand this problem and take action to improve their quality of life.
