United Nations Development Programme

Our team has provided support to the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in a number of ways. Most recently, we expanded our ability to measure and visualize each country’s progress over time in achieving the SDGs, adding two additional specialized displays in IFs that allow users to forecast the path of SDG achievement across targets to 2030. IFs is also featured in the UN Development Group’s online SDG Acceleration Toolkit. Previously, our team presented IFs to the organization’s analysts, partners and other data-oriented stakeholders in both Nairobi and New York. The UNDP has also solicited research papers using IFs that provided input used in the 2011 and 2013 Human Development Reports (HDR). The research in support of the 2011 HDR focused on environmental constraints to human development. The research in support of the 2013 report modeled the impact of aggressive but reasonable policy interventions across thematic issue areas.
