    As we work towards achieving sustainable development through 2030 and beyond, accounting for all people is key to ensure that no one is left behind. 

    The POPGRID Data Collaborative aims to advance the use and impact of geospatial population and infrastructure data by bringing together and expanding the international community of data providers, users, and stakeholders from both the public and private sectors to accelerate the development and use of high quality, georeferenced data on population, human settlements, and infrastructure. This website serves as a functional platform for data users across sectors to compare data, share tools, and report progress on data accessibility, quality, metadata, interoperability, intercomparison, validation, and use.
