    February 09, 2016

    Recent work from the Pew Research Center has shown a number of global commonalities in opinion on democratic values, including free expression.

    February 09, 2016

  • Identifying causes of global freshwater vulnerability

    February 09, 2016

    The total volume of water usage has significantly outpaced the rise in global population, nearly tripling in the last 50 years.

    Vertical farming– the practice of growing plants hydroponically in stacks of trays– holds promise for future food production as climate change increasingly threatens agriculture.

  • International organizations tip the scale towards integrity

    February 09, 2016

    The global fight against corruption reached several important milestones this year and seized their opportunity to recommit themselves to global integrity. In the past ten years since the UN’s Oil for Food corruption scandal, most UN agencies and other international institutions now have their own independent integrity offices to combat corruption inside these organizations. Across […]

  • How mobile tech is improving global disaster relief

    February 09, 2016

    Access to the internet or cell phone service is often hard to come by for agencies and NGOs administering aid in areas affected by disaster, but recent innovations are making this access easier. In addition to new technologies to charge mobile devices and access the internet, others help share crucial information, both between agencies working […]

  • UN agency issues guidance to help countries deal with refugee protection and security concerns

    February 09, 2016

    Last month, the UN released guidelines to help states deal with security concerns while protecting refugees.

    Connectivity Atlas

    Infrastructure connects us and defines us. The roads, pipelines and Internet cables that deliver our services also shape our opportunities, our vulnerabilities, and our identities. Political and geographic maps abound - yet there are few useful, elegant maps of the complex infrastructure that ties us. The Connectivity Atlas invites you to explore the shapes and lines that advance our global connectedness. We believe that great insight lies in these maps. Click here to see the Connectivity Atlas
