The Bluenumber SDG Scorecard was introduced at the United Nations in 2015 as a beneficiary-centric tool to track and measure the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The B# SDG Scorecard is a measure of an individual using the metrics of the UN SDGs. It can aggregate scores of individuals to show the SDG scores of families, households and communities. The Scorecard measures how the activities of Governments, businesses and NGOs are delivering positive impact in the lives of real people.
The SDG Scorecard draws direct feedback from people as an add-on to locally-customised apps. For example, data from farmers in agricultural communities can be calibrated to show what works or what is lacking in rural development. In urban areas consumers can immediately see how buying decisions affect their personal SDG scores. Governments can measure SDG improvements in every farmer's life, and companies can show how those improvements raise the SDG scores of every one of their consumers.
Global B# SDG Scorecard for Smallholder Farmers
A standard to measure available data against 16 SDGs to demonstrate the model applies to any farmer in any country for any crop
Mung Bean farmers in Bangladesh
Cocoa farmers in Cote d’Ivoire
Palm Oil farmers in Indonesia
Rice farmers in Japan
Sustainable development goals for edible oils (SDG4EO)
The SDGs for Edible Oils (SDG4EO) project led by Bluenumber Indonesia for smallholder palm oil farmers.
This project is developing and testing a customised B#SDG Scorecard for edible vegetable oils by benchmarking the SDG profiles of 1,000 Indonesian palm oil (PO) smallholder farmers. The results measure the lives and livelihoods of PO smallholders and their communities against the SDGs.
Additionally, the project promotes digital financial inclusion by paying incentives directly to farmers for sharing data on sustainable practices. Transparency of the value chain evidences no deforestation, planting on peat or exploitation commitments and connects businesses to the farmers who supply them.
