Benefits (and Costs) of improved data for tracking SDG4

Thu, April 18, 11:45am to 1:15pm, Hyatt Regency, Floor: Street (Level 0), Regency B


There is an abundance of research about the costs of measuring the SDGs. Institutions with the mandate to measure the SDGs are busy estimating costs and making plans to improve both reporting and capacity within countries. However, some observers and commentators are sceptical about the benefits of measurement. This paper will take a “value of information” approach to calculating the benefits of having and using information by asking: what is the social (monetary) benefit of running an education system with full information versus running the same education system with only limited information? The paper will help dispel scepticism about the worth of investing in data and information.
