Add metadata

Organizations are invited to add to and validate collected data. This catalog aims to promote data dissemination in an accessible, timely and coherent way. Coverage includes the UN system’s programme and management data for the benefit of the public and other stakeholders, including senior management and member states. It presents descriptions of datasets; each description is a metadata record. Each dataset included within the catalogue is an identifiable collection of structured data objects unified by some criteria (authorship, subject, scope, spatial or temporal extent...).

In this section we will soon provide examples of visualizations that serve our understanding and insight in key areas of UN system activity. But this is just the start. We encourage you to take these ideas, experiment by extracting insights and suggest other ways of presenting and discovering valuable information. We look forward to receiving feedback on your findings.
