The African Development Bank (AfDB) has launched a tool for tracking progress on its "High-Five" key development priorities and creating opportunities for corrective action. The application tracks country progress in the High-Five areas identified by AfDB President Akinwumi Adesina as critical for implementing AfDB's Strategy 2013- 2022 and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): Light up and power Africa, Feed Africa, Integrate Africa, Industrialize Africa, and Improve the quality of life for people in Africa.
The application presents ranking tables, maps and charts, as well as detailed information on indicators, grouped according to the High-Five priority areas. Users can export the data to external formats, such as Microsoft Excel, Word, CSV or Powerpoint.
It is also possible to make comparative tables between countries, as exemplified by the picture above that shows the indicators of the first "High-Five" Light Up and Power Africa for the PALOP.
The High-Fives application can be accessed at this link http://opendataforafrica.org/and is accessible on iPads, iPhones, Androids, laptops and PCs.
