Data revolution: development's next frontier

Opinion - Articles and blogs - 28 January 2014
'Bad data is a recipe for bad decisions. Without data, governments and other institutions and individuals trying to make policies or run programs in any sector are operating almost blindly. They can’t know what inputs are needed where. And they can’t know if the things they are doing are actually working, as there’s no way of telling if things are getting better or not.'
