Data for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG): Featuring the launch of the SDSN Data Platform for the SDGs

With only 10 years left to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG)s, there is need for a data platform that makes quality and timely data for the SDGs accessible to all, improves knowledge of geospatial tools and geographic information systems (GIS), and builds capacity to use these tools to support global agendas and policy making. In partnership with Esri and National Geographic, SDSN has developed a platform, ‘SDGs Today’, with real-time and timely data for the SDGs. ‘SDGs Today’ will support and encourage countries and other institutions to produce and share their data to this common, universally beneficial platform. The platform will also house GIS training and education material relevant for a variety of interest groups, helping train future and current leaders in GIS for Sustainable Development. ‘SDGs Today’ has the potential to revolutionize how we understand and communicate the urgency of the SDGs, how we develop solutions, and the speed and quality with which we do both.
