New Report
*"World Development Report 2021: Data for Better Lives" (WDR2021)*
published by the World Bank, 2021.

*About the Report:* Today’s unprecedented growth of data and their ubiquity
in our lives are signs that the data revolution is transforming the world.
And yet much of the value of data remains untapped. Data collected for one
purpose have the potential to generate economic and social value in
applications far beyond those originally anticipated. But many barriers
stand in the way, ranging from misaligned incentives and incompatible data
systems to a fundamental lack of trust.* World Development Report 2021:
Data for Better Lives *explores the tremendous potential of the changing
data landscape to improve the lives of poor people, while also
acknowledging its potential to open back doors that can harm individuals,
businesses, and societies. To address this tension between the helpful and
harmful potential of data, this Report calls for a new social contract that
enables the use and reuse of data to create economic and social value,
ensures equitable access to that value, and fosters trust that data will
not be misused in harmful ways.
