Data to action

As SEMA, we are currently doing research to find out how data can actually improve government’s performance, according to SDG 16.6.

Check out some of the ways we turn data to action:

Awesome reports

We publish easy-to-understand, clear data reports that anyone, of any background, can understand at a glance.

Consulting with local offices

We present this data directly to managers of local offices. No bureaucracy: discussion right where the change needs to happen.

High-level government meetings

Major stakeholders care about data on public services. We engage and work with them to keep them up to dfate.

Sharing best performance

Positive recognition of great public service works wonders. We highlight the offices performing the best.

Engaging Civil Society

We engage civil society organizations to bring their voices and data to the conversation.

In collaboration with the Knowledge Management Fund, we have published our lessons learned about how citizen feedback can lead to real change at public offices.
