Examining the Role of Big Data for Strengthening Multi-stakeholder Partnerships in the SDGs
Never again should it be possible to say, “we didn’t know”.
No one should be invisible. This is the world we want – a world that counts.
(2014 A World That Counts)
Big Data is a set of hardware, software, and algorithmic tools using large sets of data from a myriad of sources, from social media to satellite imagery, in real time to make insightful decisions. Big Data for Sustainable Development Goals applies these tools to the 17 SDGs to enable nations to make better assessments of their progress.
The “2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development” (SDG) was approved in September 2015 and launched in January 2016. It encompasses 17 goals to include economic growth, social inclusion, and environmental protection. These cover Poverty removal (Goal 1) to gender equality, climate change, etc. Big Data has the potential to accelerate the assessment as well as get quicker feedback to enable policy makers to achieve these goals.
