The GPSC Urban Dashboard was developed to spatially locate the platform’s cities and knowledge partners together with case studies and other data relevant for its work. To use the dashboard, either click on icons or jurisdictions on the map, or select options from the dropdown menu at left. Information regarding the platform’s approximately 30 cities can be found in the dashboard along with links to available knowledge resources on GPSC’s website.
A selection of layers can also be viewed over the map, for instance showing the global biodiversity hotspots which are important for GPSC’s work supporting urban biodiversity.

Assessing the sustainability of cities through their planning, building, and management actions can provide insights of how to approach their common or individual challenges and opportunities. Through GPSC’s work a range of cities have been benchmarked and the findings will gradually be made available on the City Dashboard. Also, the featured layers below show a pool of urban indicators provided by diferent organizations.
