CLIENT CASE STUDY


PROJECT 8: GLOBAL PLATFORM,
GREATER GOOD.

Food. Water. Energy. Demand for these basic human needs is shifting as populations continue to grow and become more urban.

 

With the global population estimated to reach 8 billion by 2030, we cannot wait to plan for human needs, sustainability and growth. Yet, despite pockets of progress, there was no integrated view of how to tackle these global issues—and support future generations.

 

Project 8 is changing that.

 

In Project 8, global development organizations and researchers now have a single, online platform and community: For accessing and analyzing data. Sharing exciting findings. And collaborating on important topics—from food security to the future of agriculture.

GLOBAL PROBLEMS REQUIRE
GLOBAL SOLUTIONS

For the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the United Nations Foundation and several other organizations, working to predict and plan for the future was nothing new. But their efforts were isolated—based on their own data, projections and mathematical models.

 

Leaders from these institutions—as well as Accenture, Nielsen, Salesforce, The Conference Board and The Demand Institute—saw a pressing need for global collaboration. With the ability to share data, organizations would be better able to understand challenges, mobilize and align resources, and support effective decision- and policymaking.

ANALYTICS POWERED,
CLOUD HOSTED

So how do organizations from across the globe share data on human needs indicators?

 

The answer is Project 8.

 

Those forward-thinking organizations teamed up to create Project 8—a global platform that serves as a repository for global data and an exchange of ideas. By connecting data from many organizations, Project 8 closes the research and data gap in the global development sector.

 

Project 8 is also a digital collaboration tool. This online community provides a space for those who are tasked with figuring out future human needs to collaborate on the predictive science behind human needs modeling.

 

Sumair Sayani quote

By bringing researchers and data together in a more centralized tool, we’ll have researchers better anticipate future demands, we’ll make their insights more visible to the rest of us and, ultimately, we’ll help the world collectively do a better job of planning to meet the needs of 8 billion people and beyond.
