Standardizing City-Level Data-Gathering (SCiLeD)

SCiLeD provides important insights into the intersections of data, urbanism, and sustainability across multiple social and political contexts, including contributing to understanding both informal settlements and the gaps in implementing UN Sustainable Development Goals in Africa.

This platform uses interactive map and charts to visualize the result of a survey conducted within the Chorkor and Old Fadama communities of Ghana. The survey comprises household information of residents and facilities available in these two communities.

The project was developed under the Institute of Environment and Sanitation Studies of the University of Ghana.
