Measuring Real Impacts

Realising SDG Benefits for Every Individual

Research on the MDGs (which were succeeded by the SDGs) shows a critical data gaps exists at the individual level – e.g. global poverty levels might be higher than the previously assumed 25%. Surveys and census on employment and households miss up to 350 million people. Current thinking extrapolates sampled top-down data to measure progress – a weakness of unconnected, silo-based, legacy data systems.
Bluenumbers can measure if SDG investments are actually delivering the benefits promised to individuals. Government, CSR and sustainability practitioners can directly measure if they are making progress and people’s lives are getting better.
