Data Exchange for Non-Government Organizations & Institutions

Make better informed decisions and deliver efficient support to the people and the planet by improving data collaboration with internal and external stakeholders.

Exchange data and collaborate with organizations and governments around the world

The COVID-19 crisis illustrates how critical and strategic data exchange is in resolving global crises and addressing major concerns. NGOs and institutions now realize that better data circulation is essential to build a better world.

Whether climate, food, diseases, humanitarian, economic, environmental or social, all major challenges of the twenty-first century can be successfully met through better access and use of data from multiple sources, organized within data ecosystems. Data ecosystems have become a fundamental component of competitiveness and economic sovereignty.

Organizations who share data have greater outcomes due to more informed decisions, sharper insight, improved collaboration, and can offer more relevant services for the people and the planet.

The 2022 Davos agenda addresses the importance of Data Ecosystems

More than $20 billion in new value have been created by public-private data exchanges for the common good. They have adopted innovative business models, privacy-enhancing new approaches and technologies to strengthen citizen trust.

The challenges organizations are facing today, whether economical, environmental or societal, have become so complex that it is now impossible for any individual organization or government to solve them by themselves. Sharing and exchanging data between multiple stakeholders at scale has become an imperative.

The 2022 Davos Agenda had 4 dedicated sessions on data exchange and data sharing.

Listen to the panel entitled “Strengthening Trust in Public-Private Data Exchanges” where Fabrice Tocco, Dawex co-CEO, is sharing his vision on new data exchange ecosystems.

Improve collaboration with internal and external stakeholders

Data hubs or Data Exchange Platforms, operated by non-government organizations, would offer policy makers, NGOs and institutions, as well as organizations from the private sector, a secure and trusted environment to fulfill their core mission through better sourcing, sharing and exchange of data.

Making better decisions

By extracting value from policies, programs and operations, and sharing them on data exchange platforms can contribute in better insight to forecast outcomes and identify opportunities.

Stimulating collaboration

The development of data exchange platforms or data hubs will create powerful data ecosystems, and promote cooperation between divisions internally and externally with other organizations.

Fostering innovation

Leveraging the wealth of multiple data sources will foster innovative services, projects or initiatives for the common good.

Humanitarian and health crisis

Accelerating response with Data Exchange

The COVID-19 pandemic has illustrated how critical data use is to build up fast response in crisis situations. Data Exchange Platforms offer a trusted environment to facilitate and accelerate data circulation, while ensuring traceability and security over the data transaction. Here are some use cases where data sharing is a game changer:

  • Speed-up the search for new drugs and solutions and anticipate where scarce supplies will be most needed
  • Understand the spread of diseases and predict effectiveness of different actions to slow it
  • Bring together scattered non-standardized data to create a common picture of needs and response

Climate change

Reducing carbon footprint

Climate change requires immediate and far-reaching action. According to the BCG, cross-sector data partnerships contribute to speeding up the journey to net-zero GHG emissions by 5 to 10%. Data Exchange solutions are key in helping climate related data circulate and raising awareness between the many stakeholders in order to:

  • Deliver more accurate and timely weather- and climate-related analysis
  • Work out a complete and accurate supply chain-wide carbon footprint by sharing carbon-equivalent data
  • Create digital twins to provide highly accurate predictions of climate future developments

Sustainable development

Improving natural resources management

Natural resources and biodiversity are threatened by human activities. Sharing and exchanging data can optimize the use of natural resources and reduce human footprint, such as:

  • The monitoring of forest cover with earth observation data collected by satellites, drones and other connected devices
  • The creation of climate-based use cases to help farmers make the right operational decisions and reduce chemical inputs
  • The use of sensor data from fishing vessels to create a best practice fishery management system

Trade and macroeconomy

Monitoring trends and forecasts economic developments

The need for statistical, economic and social data has never been so critical to understand the transformations the world is living through. Data Exchange solutions improve data accessibility and can be used to preserve economic sovereignty. Facilitating data circulation through trusted and secure data exchange environments enables the development of powerful use cases, among them:

  • Governments can better compare the effectiveness of their public policies
  • Economic trends can be better monitored, analyzed, and forecasted
  • The interconnection with other data ecosystems allows to build innovative policies through collaboration

Organizations’ cooperation

Optimize internal and external stakeholder cooperation to meet strategic objectives

Data exchange within and between organizations facilitates the circulation of data and information sharing, allowing teams to improve communication, gain operational efficiency, foster new products and services, and create partnerships to capitalize on the richness and full potential provided by data. By accelerating the flow of data flow, NGOs and institutions can:

  • Take a central position in their ecosystem and become real data hubs for other organizations, institutions and government
  • Leverage data to optimize supply chains and make them more resilient
  • Create rich reportings on cross actions implying several stakeholders to achieve common goals

Data Exchange, an integral part of the World Economic Forum Transformation Map

The World Economic Forum Global Future Council on Data Policy undertook the impressive work of mapping the forces that are transforming the data ecosystem. As a Tech Pioneer and member of the Global Future Council, Dawex was invited to deliver the Data Exchange perspective.

The needs for exchanging data between public and private organizations have never been more crucial as it’s addressing business and societal challenges, reinforcing public-private partnerships to foster new cooperation power based on data circulation.

The benefits brought by the circulation of data are infinite.
