WHAT WE DO
Data Access to mobilize revenue
Access to data has becomen one of the key factors of success in many government’s processes and operations today, including those related to revenue mobilization. Properly used in compliance with security and privacy requirements, data can catalyze massive financial and operational benefits for governments, tax administrations and other authorities involved in domestic revenue mobilization (DRM).
The role of data for SDGs
Data-driven approach to DRM represents a game-changer in the achievement of sustainable development goals (SDGs) in low- to middle-income countries. However, lack of data infrastructure impedes their capability to take this decisive step. Africa and Latin America, for example, account for less than 5% of the wolrd’s colocation data centers.*
This is why capacity building related to data has always been at the core of GVG’s offering. We assist governments in making the best of the new data technologies to streamline and boost revenue mobilization processes, among other critical purposes.
