GRID: Child Inequality Tracker

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) promised to ensure that no one is left behind by progress and that those who are left farthest behind are reached first. To fulfil the ground-breaking pledge to Leave No One Behind, it is necessary to know who the furthest behind are, monitor their progress, and build public and political understanding about the importance of reaching them.

Navigate the below data visualisation to understand the inequalities that still persist for key SDG indicators between different groups of children, both within and across countries.
