Beyond Recovery: Toward 2030
Today, the full capacity of the UN system is mobilized, including the socio-economic strengths of over 40 UN Development System entities.
The UN’s socio-economic response, technically led by UNDP, is one of three critical components of the UN’s efforts to save lives, protect people, and rebuild better, alongside the UN’s health response, led by the World Health Organization (WHO), and the humanitarian response, as detailed in the COVID-19 Global Humanitarian Response Plan, led by the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.
As technical lead of the socio-economic response, UNDP brings together this Covid-19 Data Futures Platform. The platform is a collection of data, analysis, visualizations, insights, and interactive tools that can support the analysis of strategic policy questions in the five areas of Policies and Programmes, in alignment with the ‘UN framework for the immediate socio-economic response to Covid-19’ – Health First, Protect People, Economic Recovery, Macro Response and Social Cohesion. Data is integrated from various trusted sources, including data collected by or supported by UNDP and other UN Agencies, Governments, and development partners. The platform will also feature existing dashboards, integrating indicators, insights, and knowledge products.
The intent of this platform is to support our societies to not only recover from this crisis, but to build into a better world toward 2030. Framing and data will likely to evolve over the next 18 months of recovery phase as the situation dynamically change.
We invite you to explore the different datasets, and to utilize them for designing policies and interventions. We also invite you to take part in this initiative by providing feedback, requesting new analyses and functions, partnering on data and analysis, and spreading the word for wider use.
