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 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 UN’s socio-economic response to the COVID-19 pandemic, UNDP offers the COVID-19 Data Futures Platform – an open resource platform which translates multidimensional data into actionable insights and supports users to design development solutions that build forward from the pandemic. Drawing on data from across the UN system and partners, the platform provides cutting-edge analyses, visualisations and simulations that focus on the most critical recovery challenges in an interactive way for rapid decision making and sensemaking.
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.

The platform is powered by UNDP’s SDG Integration mandate and builds on our long-standing commitment to technology and innovation in responding to development challenges.
