Priorities as a partner of the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data

As the global leader in GIS technology, Esri will provide the ArcGIS platform to least-developed countries for the collection, management, monitoring, and use of sustainable development goals data. The ArcGIS platform will also provide content such as the digital Living Atlas of the World, which includes imagery, social, urban system, economic, and environmental data that can enrich understanding and inform decision making.

Geospatial data and analysis are essential to achieving the goals, which include ending poverty and hunger, ensuring the availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation everywhere, combating climate change, and building resilient infrastructure. The ArcGIS platform will provide countries the geoenabled information management framework they need as well as an easy way to openly share geospatial data.

Esri continues to support its commitment through its Non-profit and Global Organizations Program. We are supporting the collaborative efforts put forward by the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data. At its core, the ArcGIS platform supports understanding of complex issues and data-driven action, beginning with gathering good data and then analyzing it to reveal patterns and trends.
