Summary of MY World results submitted to the Secretary General´s High Level Panel for Post-2015 meeting in Monrovia

The web version of MY World was launched in mid-December and has quickly picked up pace in January. As of today, 183 countries have started to choose their priorities for a better world. More than 55% of those that have taken the survey are women. 124 partners, listed in the annex, have signed up to promote MY World to their members, including through offline methods. Work with the Nike Foundation will see MY World taken offline into 15,000 villages in Rwanda. In India one of the largest civil society coalitions, Wada Na Todo Abhiyan, will help the survey reach 100,000 people.

The mobile phone version of MY World, using texts and voice technology, will be launched soon in India. Discussions are also underway with mobile phone providers in Indonesia, Nigeria and the Philippines, and we will expand the mobile survey to at least another 15 countries over time.

The offline version of MY World is now being rolled out, with a survey involving a stratified sample of over 2,000 people already conducted in Liberia. Over the next three months, offline surveys will be taken forward in an additional 20 countries.
This early report provides detailed results for the first comprehensive MY World survey, in Liberia, and preliminary results from the online survey.
