Environmental leaders from around the world are in Abu Dhabi this week at the Eye on Earth Summit to discuss how data collaboration can impact sustainable development. It’s getting harder to track big data around the environment, but new public-private collaborations are putting key environmental data at everyone’s fingertips. That’s precisely why the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and Eye on Earth Alliance created UNEP Live.

“If good data drives better decisions, open data drives better collaboration. We will need both for a sustainable future,” says Achim Steiner, the Executive Director of UNEP,Tweeting from the Eye on Earth Summit in Abu Dhabi. 

UNEP Live creates the space where vital connections happen. Available in 90 languages, countries are able to track their progress toward United Nations sustainable development goals, carbon-emission targets, and other environmental milestones. 

The portal can also be used to explore a wide range of data sets from around the world including maps, info-graphics, reports on air quality, emissions, health, climate change, and econometrics. The UNEP Live tools even include apps for digging further into the data.

The platform launched with an impressive breadth and depth of data in 2014. Following a recent data drive call, UNEP Live has new contributing partners from the private sector (such as Amazon Web Services), government resources (such as the Water Quality Portal), academia (Notre Dame GAIN) and citizen-science tools (such as Azavea’s OpenTreeMap and the SciStarter Citizen Science API), plus dozens more from around the world.The value of this professionally crowd-sourced data clearinghouse will grow exponentially as new partners and the public contribute. UNEP is encouraging companies, government agencies, research institution, and non-governmental organization to join in and share their data related to the environment or climate change.
