Updated: Jan 19, 2022
UN Environment, Google, the European Commission and partners aim to “leave no one behind” on World Water Day, launching a groundbreaking data platform to track the world’s water bodies—and countries’ progress in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
“UN Environment is proud of this exciting partnership with Google and the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre that brings the very best of technology to support countries in collecting data on development challenges. This will play a critical role in helping countries monitor progress on the Sustainable Development Goals and importantly, in taking informed decisions to improve the lives of people and protect the environment,” says Acting UN Environment Executive Director Joyce Msuya.
