SDG16 Data Initiative.

July 2016.

Beauty pageant contestants are not the only people who wish for world peace. We all do. In fact there’s a whole Sustainable Development Goal dedicated to peace, justice and stronger institutions. To make this wish come true though, we need a clear picture of what action needs to be taken and where.

We worked with the SDG16 Data Initiative to build an interactive web application that brings together official UN indicators and supplementary data from non-governmental sources. By visualising the data we already have on an open platform, we can all understand where we are and what we need to do to make the world a more peaceful place. Putting all this information in one place helps us fight corruption, reduce violence and protect fundamental freedoms.
