Fourth UN World Data Forum 2023

April 24th - 27th, 2023 Hangzhou, China


The Fourth UN World Data Forum 2023 is scheduled to take place in Hangzhou, China, in April 2023. The UN World Data Forum aims to spur data innovation, nurture partnerships, mobilize high-level political and financial support for data, and build a pathway to better data for sustainable development.

The 2023 edition of the Forum will promote four main thematic areas, which contain the critical issues and pressing actions identified by the global data and statistics community, to serve as a “rallying call” for programme proposals with practical solutions and hands-on experiences on these issues. The four thematic areas are:

  • Innovation and partnerships for better and more inclusive data;
  • Maximizing the use and value of data for better decision making;
  • Building trust and ethics in data; and
  • Emerging trends and partnerships to develop the data ecosystem.

The Fourth UN World Data Forum will be hosted by the Chinese National Bureau of Statistics, with support from the Statistics Division of the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA), under the guidance of the UN Statistical Commission and the High-level Group for Partnership, Coordination and Capacity-Building for Statistics for the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (HLG-PCCB).
