Introduction:

One of the themes of Alif Ailaan programme is the data and evidence component. Under this component, SDPI, as an implementing partner, is working preparing ‘Data Depository.’ The data observatory provides a nexus for the development of a national discourse around education data and evidence. Therefore, Alif Ailaan and SDPI aims to turn the online data depository into a clearing house for data, news, and research related to education in Pakistan. 

Objectives:

The objective of the data portal is to create an online portal containing all relevant public data in the country. The idea is also to make these data open source easy to access and use. The data is useful in informing the public about various aspects of social and Economic sectors in Pakistan and influences data regime in the country. The medium-term objective for the Pakistan Data Portal is to become the main source of education data for all relevant stakeholders. The long-term objective is to expand further from education data and incorporate data on other sources. A significant portion of this work, therefore, involves communication with stakeholders and the general public.
