Combatting Hunger

World Food Programme

Working to end hunger and create a more just world

Nearly 700 million people face hunger across the world. WFP works across 88 countries to ensure people's needs are met. 

Partnership start date: 2017

Total funding committed: $2,026,530

Region: Global

What they do
Equal Measures 2030 holds every country accountable to achieving gender equity—one of the Sustainable Development Goals—by the year 2030. EM2030 is translating the data it collects on current gender inequities into action by publicizing it and sharing it with other organizations working toward equity.

What our partnership does
For data to be truly actionable, it has to be understandable. Tableau Foundation worked with Equal Measures 2030 to develop a dashboard where advocates—and the public—can easily view where countries currently stand on achieving gender equity and the rest of the SDGs. And EM2030 is helping other nonprofits advocating for women and girls integrate data into their work.
