MapX UNDP sandbox - MapX as a support tool to inform National Biodiversity Planning and Reporting and to strengthen implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals



to develop an online cloud platform that allows national teams that are engaged in biodiversity and sustainable development planning and reporting to make evidence-based decisions from the best available spatial data. The collaboration will create a spatial data ‘sandbox’ portal where partners and participants can share spatial data and build a collaborative and scalable spatial data platform based on the MapX architecture. This will support the development of national government capacity to access, understand and utilize spatial data for inclusion in the 6th National Report.
