Undernourishment Sustainability Challenge

Undernourishment Sustainability Challenge

This dashboard shows the percentage of people suffering from extreme undernourishment around the world.
Unfortunately, there are millions of people with low income level who are currently undernourished and food insecurity appears to be increasing in some places like Africa in the last years. For example, around 21% of people in Sub-Saharan Africa were suffering from hunger in 2017!

A profound change of the global food and agriculture system is needed if we are to nourish the millions of people who are hungry today.
It is time to rethink how we grow, share and consume our food to provide nutritious food for all and protect the environment.

GDP per capita vs Population Age distribution. Let’s explore it

GDP per capita vs Population Age distribution. Let’s explore it

The below storyboard highlights and examines a correlation between the GDP per capita and population age distribution. The visualization shows a comparison between regions and across time. This correlation makes us think more about future problems like pensions, economic growth, child labor, retirement age, and possible social problems. It is worth examining further if there is causality. Are economic changes coming based on age distribution?

The dashboard is interactive. Please feel free to filter, highlight, and discover the data in more depth. The fullscreen setting will allow for a better viewing experience.

Contribution of Different Non-EDL Sources to Power Generation in Lebanon between 2010 and 2013

Contribution of Different Non-EDL Sources to Power Generation in Lebanon between 2010 and 2013

With growing power demand, Lebanese authorities decided to deploy powerships (Karpowership) in June 2012. These powerships remain a subject of debate among Lebanese officials to date. The visual portrays the effect of the introduction of the powerships on the distribution of contribution of different Non-EDL power sources to the Lebanese electricity network.

A significant drop in the contribution of foreign supply (Syria and Egypt) as well as the contribution of Hydraulic power generation was witnessed in 2013, in comparison to the significant emergence of powerships as main contributors (40% of Non-EDL power generation). Powerships continue to raise eyebrows regarding their cost efficiency and environmental friendliness in comparison to the other power sources.
