July 2022 Quality Infrastructure and SDGs

Website for United Nations, to explore SDGs relationship to quality infrastructure

The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) is a specialized agency of the United Nations that promotes and accelerates inclusive and sustainable industrial development in developing countries and economies in transition.

This project aimed to strengthen the quality infrastructure systems in developing countries, helping to enhance their competitiveness and ability to trade internationally, while also contributing to the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

We designed and developed a user-friendly website for government officials, quality infrastructure institutions, and other stakeholders to access information and resources related to quality infrastructure.

The website consists of four views:

  • A homepage with visually striking maps and animations that provide an overview of the data and findings.

  • Specific sections dedicated to explore the relationship between quality infrastructure and the SDGs from various angles

  • Country profile pages provide in-depth information at a national level, and the ability to compare against similar income countries or the broader region.

  • A section to explain the methodology used to develop the index, providing transparency and credibility to the data presented on the site.

Challenges achieved

  • Present complex data in a visual and intuitive way, making it accessible for a broad audience.
  • Responsive across different devices, screen sizes, and slow internet connections, ensuring equitable access to critical information.
  • Stunning animations are used to communicate complex, nested data in a way that is engaging and memorable.
  • Adopted by over 180 countries, helping to strengthen their quality infrastructure systems and enhance their competitiveness in international trade.
  • Contribute to the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals , with a particular focus on Goal 9: Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure
