Alcis sustainable development goals

Geographic Information Services that enable better understanding of complex environments

The Sustainable Development Goals

Nearly half of the world’s population lives in poverty.  The lack of food and clean water kills thousands every day.

Together, we can feed the hungry, wipe out disease and give everyone in the world a chance to prosper.

In 2015, world leaders agreed to 17 Global Goals (the SDGs). 

To make change in our world happen, we need to understand what’s happening.

Using geospatial analysis and earth observation, Alcis is working to achieve the goals and improve lives.
