Emerging standards and best practices for data sharing, interoperability, use, and stewardship

This session is co-organized by the ICSU World Data System.

A key need in promoting sustainable development data access, transparency, quality, and usability across goals, sectors, borders, and data communities is to improve the standards, processes, and practices that enable data reuse, access, protection, documentation, and applications. These standards, processes, and practices are likely to be especially important as the realm of relevant data expands beyond traditional government statistics to varied data types from both public and private sources, for which critical issues such as data rights, privacy, liability, integrity, and long-term access become salient.

This session will provide examples of both existing and emerging standards, principles, guidelines, and other best practices that can help facilitate more flexible, efficient, and effective data sharing and integration, and enable data use for a broad community of sustainable development data users and stakeholders.
