The Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data named the 17 members of its Board of Directors in June 2017, with United Nations Deputy Secretary-General Amina J. Mohammed among them.

The Global Partnership's Board of Directors is supported by a Technical Advisory Group.

Only with accurate, timely and inclusive data can we comprehensively assess the challenges we face, identify and invest in the most appropriate solutions, and measure the results and concrete progress we must make to build back better post-COVID-19. These challenges can’t be tackled alone—that’s why the Global Partnership’s role in bringing together: private sector, civil society, youth, researchers, and governments remains critical.
