From Global to Local

Global Goals at Home is a program within the United Nations Association of the National Capital Area, a membership-based organization with over 2,000 advocates across DC, MD, and VA committed to advancing universal human rights and dignity. Global Goals at Home (GGH) bridges the gap between global goals and local action; through the creation of an online dashboard, GGH is cataloging, localizing, and contextualizing progress towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) across the DMV.

The SDGs offer an interconnected blueprint for sustainable and inclusive change, as well as a necessary framework for collaborating across stakeholders. However, the SDGs measure progress using benchmarks that do not capture the reality of inequality and critical need in the United States, particularly at the municipal level. Our interactive online dashboard documents quantitative and qualitative progress towards the SDGs across DC, MD, and VA, utilizing proxy indicators at the state, county/ward, and congressional district level.

This research framework, as well as the published data and analysis, serve as valuable tools in bridging data gaps and developing coalitions. UNA-NCA partners with direct service providers, think tanks, universities, and private sector partners to inform and reform all published content. UNA-NCA is a facilitator, convening roundtables, amplifying essential messaging, and serving as a conduit between constituents and their state and Congressional representatives.
