Development Initiatives (DI) is an independent international development organisation that focuses on the role of data in driving poverty eradication and sustainable development. Vision Their vision is a world without poverty that invests in human security and where everyone shares the benefits of opportunity and growth.  mission Their mission is to ensure that decisions about the allocation of finance and resources result in an end to poverty, increase the resilience of the world’s most vulnerable people, and ensure no one is left behind. They work to make sure these decisions are underpinned by good quality, transparent data and evidence on poverty and resources, and lead to increased accountability and sustainable long-term outcomes. Work Since Development Initiatives began in 1993 their expertise and passions have been rooted in the role data can play. They are focussed on getting better data on poverty and vulnerability so we know where need is greatest and whether efforts are working. They are dedicated to improving information about resources so that they can be targeted effectively. And they want to help others use data to improve decision-making and drive better results.
