Voluntary National Reviews Visualization

Tools

Through keyword visualization, this platform allows the user to explore reports that contribute to the follow-up and review process of the 2030 Agenda, including Voluntary National Reviews and Country Progress Reports. Use this tool to see how countries are presenting progress, sharing experiences, lessons learned and challenges in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The platform is a UNDP initiative in collaboration with UN SDG Action Campaign, UN DESA, and UN DOCO. The platform allows users to explore the interlinkages that countries make in the reports between the SDGs. Users will be able to choose SDG sets from selected reports through text mining technology. The data engineering and visualization platform offers a scalable cloud-based text analytics service that connects with multiple data storage engines, leveraging the latest artificial intelligence (AI) technology, the visualizations go beyond simple keyword tracking. The platform could analyze both structured and unstructured data to provide data-driven interactive experience using visualizations, in multiple languages. This interactive platform intends to serve a wide range of stakeholders, including Member States, UN Development System, development practitioners and policy makers, academics, civil society, the private sector and the public. The tool will elevate efficiency and effectiveness in reading and using the reports for follow-up and review, and intends to increase engagement and continued attention from all stakeholder in this process.
