Malaysian SDG Dashboard

Malaysian SDG Dashboard

SDSN Malaysia has formulated a state-by-state SDG Dashboard utilising ArcGIS to enable localised tracking of SDG indicators. The Dashboard is fuelled by statistics from the Malaysian Department of Statics and enables effective progress communication by emulating the SDSN SDG Index methodology.

A dashboard will serve the following purposes:

  • Public engagement to understand the SDGs

  • To know which states are performing well or poorly for overall and specific SDGs

  • To lay the basis for more policy briefs and working papers

  • To lay the foundations of an ASEAN-level SDG Dashboard

Launched in December 2020, Mission 4.7 is a global initiative founded by Global Schools and the SDG Academy, both flagship programmes of the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN). Mission 4.7 is in partnership with UNESCO, the UN specialised agency for education; the Ban Ki-moon Centre for Global Citizens; and the Columbia University Center for Sustainable Development.
