Data to End Hunger: The 50 X 2030 Intiative
There are 821 million hungry people worldwide and this number is on the rise.
The 50 X 2030 initiative, launched at UN General Assembly in September 2018, is an ambitious effort to conduct regular surveys of farming households in 50 low and lower-middle income countries by 2030—and then make the data, combined with other information sources, widely available.
With better data, we can end hunger, together.
Africa Regional Data Cube - leveraging satellite data to help people in crisis
The Africa Regional Data Cube is a new tool that harnesses Earth observation and satellite technology to help Ghana, Kenya, Senegal, Sierra Leone, and Tanzania address food security and issues relating to agriculture, deforestation, and water access. This tool can also play a critical role in supporting refugees, internally displaced peoples, and people living in fragile or conflict-affected states.
The data cube was developed by the Committee on Earth Observation Satellites (CEOS) in partnership with the Group on Earth Observations, Amazon Web Services, Office of the Deputy President – Kenya, Strathmore University, and the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data. Learn more.
About Data for the Sustainable Development Goals
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. Achieving and monitoring the SDGs requires the partnership of governments, the private sector, civil society, and citizens alike. It will require unprecedented amounts of data to ensure we leave a better planet for future generations.
