Research project  illuminating synergies never seen before.

The project makes a newly created dataset accessible which connects climate action to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Overview and detail.

We developed an interface that let the user explore the dataset with custom radial graphs and compare them between countries and groups. The main findings are always in the spotlight.

DATA VISUALIZATION DESIGN

Custom radial charts for visual exploration.

We designed custom, interactive charts for the overview and SDG detail level. SDG Targets in the inner circle could be clicked to see related climate themes in the outer circle. (Data for Liberia compared to global average)

What we did

Providing new perspectives with a network graph.

We visualized synergies in a network to tackle the question: Which climate activities relate to the same SDGs?
