Filling the data gap: a common approach for data collection and use in Africa

Up-to-date information is needed to support decision-making to manage water resources and adapt to Climate Change. The low capacity of some African countries to generate and process this information delays the development of effective policy and actions. At the policy level, the lack of data also makes it difficult to track progress towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), especially in relation to water and climate action, and to increase transparency and accountability for development assistance. At the operational level, the lack of data reduces the ability of water managers and Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) to plan their operations and use resources efficiently and effectively.
