The Food Systems Dashboard – A Tool That Brings Together Data from Public and Private Sources



Sustainability of the agricultural system is now the center or you can say the hot topic for the debate around the globe. If you look at the food systems dashboard you can get a clear picture of the food system types adopted by countries and regions. You can even get an opportunity to learn and share the data related to the food systems among the crowd. This dashboard has covered the food systems adopted by countries and by looking at them you can figure out their advantages and limitations.

The Dashboard is being developed by :

People are unsure of what actions need to be taken to make food systems more inclusive of sustainability and nutrition, and they don’t know where to go for the information. So, a data-driven dashboard can be the best solution to the muddle. For each of the topics, you can identify the measures that can help you to check how well the rules are being carried out for the well-being of the food system. Having all the data related to food systems can help you to be updated.

The goal of the dashboard is to take users through three steps. First, a description of the food system in their country. Second, a diagnosis of which parts of that system are working, which are in trouble, and which areas do not have any data reported. Third, deciding on that diagnosis, providing people with what they need to make decisions—the policies, finance mechanisms, business and technology innovations, and other elements needed to point the system in the right direction.

The dashboard brings together more than 150 indicators from different sections of the food system framework, including the food environment, drivers, consumer behavior, nutritional status, and diets. The dashboard includes basic information about how food systems function and snapshots of food systems in different countries. The Dashboard then enables users to compare those profiles, and to explore the data, with about 25 indicators that cut across topics and countries.

The dashboard will also include downloadable country profiles and maps.

We at iTech Mission take it as a privilege to be a part of the project. Our technical team has worked hard to implement the state-of-the-art open-source technologies in developing the dashboard with the help of the dashboard, you can raise awareness and develop solutions towards the food system.
