    Hand-In-Hand Geospatial Platform

    FAO's Hand-In-Hand Geospatial Platform

    The Hand-in-Hand Geospatial Platform is a supporting tool for the Hand-in-Hand (HiH) Initiative, an evidence-based, country-led and country-owned initiative to accelerate SDG1 and SDG 2, using the most sophisticated tools available, including advanced geo-spatial modeling and analytics to identify the biggest opportunities to raise the incomes and reduce the inequities and vulnerabilities of rural populations, who constitute the vast majority of the world's poor. The platform brings together over 20 technical units from multiple domains across FAO, from Animal Health to Trade and Markets, integrating data from across FAO on Soil, Land, Water, Climate, Fisheries, Livestock, Crops, Forestry, Trade, Social and Economics, among others.

    Data is also sourced from FAO partners and public data providers across the UN and NGOs, academia, private sector and space agencies. Over 1 million geospatial layers and thousands of statistics series with over 4,000 metadata records have been assembled to date.

    Use the interactive HiH geospatial platform to produce data maps and create compelling impact stories. From remote-sensed geospatial data to statistical time series, the data visualization tool enables the analysis of public and private agricultural-related data at global, regional, national and subnational levels.
