14. Life below water
This is a Social Equity Initiative project, a partnership between Fundación "la Caixa", Banco BPI and Nova SBE, that was developed in partnership with Associação Natureza Portugal/World Wide Fund for Nature and Docapesca - Portos e Lotas, S.A. Congratulations to the team!
This project was also the winner of the second edition of the Data for Change competition.
The project aimed to use data analytics to shed light on the trends of the reported and sold fish caught before and during the COVID-19 pandemic, in Portugal, in all national ports. The goal was to understand how fishing activity evolved during and after the pandemic. This exploratory project was also an experiment on whether a predicting tool is feasible and useful for better and environmentally friendly management of the fishing industry.
The project's public report (in Portuguese) and a short video are available here, in Portuguese.
We all have a role to play
With just ten years to go, an ambitious global effort is underway to deliver the 2030 promise. We want to take a stand and we are calling on our community to showcase how they are contributing to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, whilst influencing more and more people to unravel their role to play.
Here, you will find four different ways your ideas can flourish, dialogue can be enhanced, and action can take place. You can choose one or all four, and Nova SBE will be there to support you all the way and guarantee tangible change.
We all have a role to play, and this is your way in.
