Data has a multiplier effect. The more quality datasets you have access to, and the easier it is for them to talk to each other, the more potential value you can get from them. Commonly-agreed data standards play a crucial role in making this happen.

- We recognize that data should be presented in structured and standardized formats to support interoperability, traceability, and effective reuse.
