Our public tools

Tracking SDGs
in real time

We develop datasets and tools that track SDGs in real-time: poverty, hunger, water scarcity, gender, and health. By combining new data sources with groundbreaking modeling methods, we help people and organizations make data-driven decisions to solve the world's biggest challenges. These tools are developed as part of our mission to democratize data and make it accessible and actionable for everyone.

World Data Lab's NGO is a social enterprise and registered non-profit organization. Our mission is to create public goods that bring clarity to—and heighten the visibility of—some of the most complex challenges of our time.


The World
Poverty Clock

Eradicating extreme poverty is the world's number one priority. However, despite advancements in technology and broad improvements in economic development worldwide, almost half a billion people will still live on less than $1.90 per day by the end of 2030.


The World
Hunger Clock

The World Hunger Clock provides real-time country-level hunger estimates and projections.
Our clock allows you to see crisis spots in the world to demonstrate which regions require attention, as well as how many people become/escape food insecurity or stunting.


Water Scarcity Clock

The world is running out of water. The Water Scarcity Clock was created in collaboration with the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) to track the number of people living in water scarce areas in real time.
