Data Act Lab is with the support from the Dag Hammarskjöld Foundation developing a ground breaking digital tool to help actors track the Global Goals
Goal Tracker is built on a foundation of core features and data visualisation tools that can be adapted to any country. Together with local partners we jointly analyze available data and then customises the platform for each country. It draws on national statistics but can also pull data from many of other sources such as the United Nations, OECD and the World Bank, as well as innovative sources like citizen generated data, satellite data, telcodata and big data.
It allows users to dive into and understand data around the SDGs in a specific country by goal, geography, gender and age. It also provides visualisations of data gaps across the Goals, Targets and Indicators, making it clear where data is missing. In addition, the platform allows countries to share descriptive information on their policies and actions to meet the goals and targets. The online platform is open-access and open source.
