Bangladesh is going through a pivotal phase, making a transition from being an LDC (Least Developed Country) to being one of the fastest-growing economies in the world. The government realizes that in order to successfully achieve the SDGs, it needs to systematically plan and monitor the impact of its policies, and be able to benchmark data and see year-on-year progress, allowing the potential to make the most impact.

Innovative Platforms such as the SDG Tracker, My Constituency, National Socio-Economic Dashboard, and National COVID-19 Data Intelligence Platform are at the core of the nation’s systematic approach to data-driven policymaking and planning across all the sectors. Moreover, the country’s data-driven response to the ongoing management of the COVID-19 pandemic has also received plaudits from the global community.
