Multiparty data sharing in the social impact sector refers to situations where two or more organizations collaborate to collect, share, and/or analyze data to address societal challenges. Multiparty data sharing often happens among stakeholders from different sectors, including governmental agencies, private companies, and nongovernmental organizations, who come together to establish collaborative partnerships.
This document focuses on data-sharing initiatives that involve partners from across sectors, excluding business-to-business (B2B) and government-to-government (G2G) data sharing.
