Streetwise San Diego

San Diego is in the top 5 cities with the largest homeless populations in California. The community in downtown San Diego specifically is struggling with drastic increased numbers and feels they are lacking the proper resources and services necessary. “Streetwise San Diego” aims to advocate for the needs of the homeless community of downtown San Diego by giving them a literal voice through interviews.

Leave No One Behind Dashboard

Leaving no one behind (LNOB) is the central, transformative promise of the 2030 Agenda and its SDGs in San Diego. This operational dashboard has been developed by SDSU’s Metabolism of Cities Living Lab graduate student Layth Hassan Zubaidi to strengthen the UNDS’ support of implementation of the 2030 Agenda’s commitment to LNOB in San Diego County. The dashboard provides a step-by-step data collection approach tutorial, mapping, and policy recommendations to operationalizing San Diego County’s pledge to leave no one behind and reach the furthest behind first through policy guidance to support SDG achievement.

SDSU SDGs Tracking Dashboard

The San Diego State University Sustainable Development Goals Tracking Dashboard contains data on changes over time visualizing SDG indicators, the future of the SDGs amidst Covid-19, as well as calculations for trajectories until 2030. To assess and monitor the 17 Global Goals, at MOC-LLAB we will employ the SDGs City Indicator Index towards social, economic, and environmental well-being. Addressing the interconnected challenges of the SDGs requires transformative change.
