Welcome to the UN System Data Catalog Following the release of the UN Secretary-General’s Independent Expert Advisory Group on a Data Revolution for Sustainable Development (IEAG) report entitled A World That Counts in November 2014, a concerted UN system response to challenges presented by the Data Revolution was approved by the CEB during its first regular session in 2015. A UN system data catalog became one of four initiatives to be adopted.

The aim of this website is to make UN system open data assets easily accessible to the public and other key stakeholders to support analysis, understanding and decision making.The UN system data catalog references datasets covering a wide range of end user applications, formats and themes. This is an initiative of the CEB High-Level Committee on Management (HLCM) and has been jointly led by UN Secretariat and CEB Secretariat. The service went live in March 2016.
