Humanitarian Tracker is a non-profit organization established in 2011 with the mission to connect and empower citizens by crowdsourcing information and using innovation in technology for humanitarian events.
Our team has demonstrated capabilities in areas of health, education, development, and conflict. In 2016, we were selected as a top global innovation for addressing the Sustainable Development Goals and showcased at the Solutions Summit, hosted at the United Nations. Building on our experiences and the momentum born out of the Solutions Summit, we want to elevate voices around the world to highlight progress made around the Global Goals and inspire everyone to do their part in making them our reality by 2030.
Priorities as a partner of the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data
Data has the power to save lives. At Humanitarian Tracker, we have experienced that first hand, from identifying disease outbreaks and relief hot spots to rescuing women and children trapped in conflict zones. We believe in open data, transparency, and harnessing the power of the crowd to do good things. In fact, open data is an integral part of our mission on connecting and empowering citizens using innovation in technology for humanitarian events.
Our project, The Global Action Mosaic, will highlight the work that is already being done globally around the goals with the aim of 1) measuring progress by goal and location and 2) inspiring citizens to get involved by creating a space where they can volunteer, advocate for, and support an existing project or create one themselves. The Global Action Mosaic is an all-inclusive project that aims to collect data around the Sustainable Development Goals, meaning anyone from a farmer working in the fields of Pakistan using clean energy to governments creating more gender equal systems are invited to be part of the mosaic.
We plan to showcase the work and progress being done globally on the Sustainable Development Goals annually beginning in 2018 and through 2030.
