Not all organizations report on their degree of alignment with the SDGs, or they employ disparate methods, which do not provide reliable and comparable results.
At the same time, organizations produce numerous documents whether for reporting needs (activity reports, sustainability reports, strategies,…), during project instruction (project descriptions, ex ante analyses, ex-post evaluations,…), or for communication (press articles, tweets,…). These documents, some of which are available online, provide a mine of information that is little used today.
What is the SDG Prospector?
The SDG Prospector uses deep learning techniques to analyse the information contained in any written document. In a few seconds, the SDG Prospector is able to draw an exhaustive and precise mapping of the SDGs contained in the text. As such, the SDG Prospector allows processing large amounts of data, and providing insights to policy makers and all actors involved in decision-making.
Why Artificial Intelligence?
The algorithm analyses the document automatically
In just a few seconds
Yielding precise results
The methodology is consistent from one document to the other, which reduces the risk of introducing bias in the analysis
