CEPEI is an independent, non-profit, non-governmental think tank, working through field-based analysis and high-level advocacy to increase the effectiveness of development cooperation in Latin America and the Caribbean. CEPEI works closely with governments and those who influence them, by analysing, promoting, generating and transferring knowledge about effective sustainable development processes.

At the moment, it is coordinating an interdisciplinary group of development stakeholders, and providing a regional platform that brings together influential leaders and practitioners from Latin America and the Caribbean to debate and generate inputs for critical issues concerning how to scale up a data revolution for a Post-2015 development framework.
