SDG Mapping

17 maps to contribute to the dissemination and collective debate regarding the 17 Sustainable Development Goals

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) elaborated by the United Nations are 17 and they range from the environment to human well-being, taking in consideration the inequalities, social problems and environmental sustainability. Through joint efforts, shared by persons, companies and states, we have the goal to achieve them by the year 2030.

SDGs Mapping is an initiative that includes a series of 17 maps through which gisAction intends to contribute to information, dissemination and collective debate regarding the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Global challenges that concern everyone, each in his professional function, as well as in the individual sphere. Multidimensional challenges that the global community leads with results in variable geographies.
Through the 17 thematic maps published twice a month, we will map the key indicators, objective by objective, using the authoritative data from the Open SDG Data Hub portal, published by the United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD).

To help monitor the progress on the Sustainable Development Goals, we need accurate, prompt, sufficiently disaggregated, relevant, accessible and user-friendly data and statistics.
This is a crucial function of information and communication technologies (ICT) and geospatial technologies in contributing to the fulfillment of the SDGs.
The geospatial data thanks to Geographic Information Systems can be exploited not only for the creation of maps, but also as decision support solutions, due to their ability to integrate and analyze multi-scale and multi-thematic geographic data, statistics and other information in order to provide clear indications to follow.
Mapping the key indicators that measure the performance in achievement of the 17 goals that we have all committed to reach by 2030, seems inevitable and essential to assess how close or far we are to the goal and to act in an informed and effective way.
