Microsoft’s Support to the Public Sector in Asia

June 1, 2023

In 2022, Cepei, together with LIRNEasia and other research centers from the Global South, created the SDG Acceleration Roadmap initiative that aimed to map public-private data collaborations and their contribution to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

From Cepei, we hope that, through this research, public-private data partnerships will improve their potential to respond to the global context.

This executive summary provides information on Microsoft’s support to the public sector in Asia through four data initiatives that aim to make data freely accessible and available for better use, ultimately contributing to achieving the SDGs.

Principales hallazgos

Big tech companies, enablers of public-private data initiatives and governments should create synergistic partnerships with actors in the ecosystem.

They should also use evidence-based practices when designing and implementing collaboration strategies.

It is key to identify specific goals and metrics to measure ‘success’ in public-private data initiatives.
