Given the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the national development strategies that Arab governments have either adopted or are in the process of developing, ADP is launching the 2019 Visualize 2030, whereby it calls upon youth (aged 20-30)to use official statistics with the aim of visualizing a data-driven story that addresses development challenges or opportunities in the Arab regionwithin the framework of the 2030 Agenda. As such, the final outputs are visualdata-driven storiesthat aredeveloped based on official statistics, and that highlight concerns, hopes or ambitions regarding a development topic in aselected Arab country or for the Arab regionas a whole.
As data revolution is a key part of the 2030 Agenda, andgiven thatdata areconsidered to be one of the fundamental elements of the accountability framework of the SDGs, the 2019 Visualize 2030aims to
(1) advocate for and encourage the adoption of open data policies and the SDGs;
(2) contribute to the enhancement of data access, use and communication in a useful, meaningful and innovative way in the Arab region; and
(3) bring together creative development practitioners, data analysts, statisticians, data scientists, graphic designers, etc. from the Arab region for one of a kind data adventure that stimulates data-driven public debateson key development issues and offers the space for highlightingout-of-the-box ideasonpressing development challenges.
