WHAT IS THE BERN NETWORK?
The Bern Network on Financing Data for Development is an open, multi-stakeholder alliance to support the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development by promoting more and better financing for data. Focused primarily on poor countries and fragile states, it works to support better identification of needs, improved investment proposals, better co-ordination at the country level, and bridge domestic and external financial and technical support for low-capacity countries.
Launched at the 2021 UN World Data Forum in Bern, the Clearinghouse for Financing Development Data is a new, free online platform that aid recipients, donors and others can use to analyse data financing flows, identify funding gaps, access data on over 15,000 projects, and connect to new communities of experts. The platform, developed by the Bern Network on Financing Data for Development. Learn more.
