Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data

The Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data is a global network of governments, NGOs, and businesses working together to strengthen innovative ways that data is used to address the world’s sustainable development efforts. The Global Partnership amplifies current efforts among its Partners and links Partners in new configurations in order to deploy quality data to see the sustainable development goals met. Funders of the Partnership include the Hewlett Foundation and IDRC. The Partnership launched in September 2015 on the margins of the United Nations General Assembly.

I was part of the coordination team for the Partnership, helping with project management, internal information organization, and logistics support.

Global Initiative for Fiscal Transparency

The Global Initiative for Fiscal Transparency (GIFT) is a multi-stakeholder action network working to advance and institutionalize global norms and significant, continuous improvements on fiscal transparency, participation, and accountability in countries around the world. I started working on GIFT as part of Innovations for Scaling Impact in 2011, and in early 2014 became an independent consultant on GIFT, contracted through the International Budget Partnership, who is acting as the fiduciary host of GIFT, managing funds from the World Bank to support GIFT. GIFT has also received funding from the Hewlett Foundation, Omidyar Network, and Metanoia Fund.

For GIFT, I was project manager, served on the coordination team, and helped facilitate the New Technologies and Open Data working group.
