How content from the pilot will be used
Input provided by participants in the pilot will be used in two primary ways.
Informing initial deliberations of the SDG expert panel
Immediately after completion of the pilot, the 2030 Compass CoLab team will review all contributions and prepare a report that synthesizes the input received from participants.
On October 3-4, 2019, the team will present that report to the initial meeting of an Expert Panel that will undertake in-depth deliberations on the interactions between the SDGs as a core activity in the overall project.
Informing a larger crowdsourcing exercise in 2020
After the pilot, a survey will elicit participants' ideas on how the process and crowdsourcing platform could be improved.
The survey results, along with observations made by the organizing team during the pilot, will suggest new ways the process could be organized and new features that could enhance the online platform.
Improvements in both the process and platform will be incorporated in advance of a subsequent crowdsourcing exercise, which will engage a larger group of exerpts, to be undertaken during the first half of 2020.
In addition to assessing interactions between the SDGs, the larger crowdsourcing effort may also assess interactions between the more detailed targets that undelay the SDGs.
As with the pilot, findings from this larger crowdsourcing effort will inform the deliberations of the SDG Expert Panel.
Data gathered in the 2020 crowdsourcing exercise may be also be fed directly into the knowledge repository that will be a key output of the overall project.
