“[D]ata and technology can be used to chart a more scientific (and measurable) approach to development.

The dashboard we are working on here in PNG will help highlight where development activities businesses are engaging in and where.

This will support partnerships with other businesses, government departments and all development partners.”

– Richa Verma & Anjori Pasricha, SocialCops

In September 2017, SocialCops visited Papua New Guinea as part of our work with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). We’re rolling out our platform to build a dashboard that will help businesses track their contributions to Papua New Guinea’s development and progress toward the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

At the end of the trip, our team caught up with UNDP to share some of our observations and thoughts on this exciting project. Read the full interview here.

“It’s great to see how businesses are so heavily invested in the development of the country…

Our visit helped us understand the national priorities, the data landscape for PNG, and how to track the work that is happening for sustainable development in the country on a single platform.”

– Richa Verma & Anjori Pasricha, SocialCops
