Launch of Country Reports: What are citizens in your country voting for?

We are proud to announce the launch of the Country Reports, which include results from MY WorldUNDG National Consultations, and twitter analysis by Global Pulse for individual countries.

The reports triangulate the MY World data with the UNDG National Consultations and the UN Global Pulse twitter analysis. The reports are only generated for those countries that have collected over 2,000 votes. As of the first quarter of 2014, 40% of the countries participating in the survey reached this point.

For the past year and a half, 1.6 million people  from all over the world have been telling the UN what is important to them. Overwhelmingly, the top priorities continue to be “A good education,” followed by “Better healthcare” and “Better job opportunities.” However, this survey data is only part of the story.

In order to enrich and reinforce the data from the MY World results, the UN and civil society have teamed up to host a Global Conversation on the World We Want 2015 platform –  an innovative online platform for curating global conversations on post-2015. The platform hosts the UN and civil society official open consultations for post-2015 and enhances civil society’s participation to make sure that peoples’ voices are taken into consideration when drafting the new development agenda. It is a unique online space that applies innovative techniques to data-mining and visualization in a friendly format, and consolidates civil society input to policy-making. 

The UN opened the door to the voices of citizens all over the world to make this development process as inclusive as possible.  As leaders meet to set the development agenda for post-2015, we need your support!!
