2015 Annual Report – UN Global Pulse

Abstract

In 2015, UN Global Pulse continued to increase the scale and pace of its work, as it directed its efforts towards transitioning from case studies and proofs of concept to implementation on the ground. The network of Pulse Labs completed more than 15 joint data innovation projects and initiated five new projects, all in collaboration with over a dozen UN agencies and development partners. The projects were complemented by a set of 12 big data tools developed together with a wide range of partners and collaborators. This report summarizes the achievements of UN Global Pulse in 2015 and provides a glimpse into longer-term prospects and priorities in the field of big data for development and humanitarian action.
