Quoin built a multi-language knowledge and data visualization platform for UN University to facilitate a global collaborative effort to end forced labor, modern slavery, human trafficking, and child labor. Our team used open source technologies - WordPress CMS and CKAN – to deliver a robust and extensible system to support an international community of policy experts, researchers, and government representatives.
The United Nations University (UNU) is a UN agency that contributes, through education and research, to address pressing global issues related to human survival, development, and welfare. In line with their mission to advance scientific and academic collaboration, UNU sponsored the development of a Global Knowledge & Data Visualization Platform to target forced labor, modern slavery, human trafficking, and child labor. The web-based platform, also known as the Delta8.7 Knowledge Hub, was designed to crystallize UNU’s focus on data-driven policy development. It is also a critical element towards achieving Target 8.7 of the UN Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.
Our development effort also included the visual design and the administrative tools for UNU staff, as well as integration with a language translation service. The engaging site design and organizational branding highlight the critical work done by UN University and the community of policy, government, and advocacy organizations. The administrative tools support user role-based access control, content administration, and taxonomy management features.
