For the second year, the Pacific Data Hub (PDH) and its partners brought the Pacific Dataviz Challenge to you, to introduce Pacific data and encourage people to use it. Why? Because we want to promote the Pacific to the rest of the world, inspire people to explore key issues in the Pacific, and make data accessible to everyone.
The 2023 Edition
This year’s challenge, which took place in September 2023, focused on food, with datasets on Pacific food trade, and Food security, and featured two categories: interactive dataviz and static dataviz. In total, 43 submissions for 14 different countries and territories were received, including 6 static dataviz and 37 interactive dataviz, that you can explore via this link.
The ceremony of the winners' announcement took place during the 6th Pacific Community‘s Heads of Planning and Statistics Meeting, at the Pacific Community's (SPC) Headquarters in Noumea, New Caledonia. Co-organised by the government of New Caledonia and the Pacific Community, the challenge's ceremony was led by Léo Cann-Polydo, Data Analyst at SPC and Houy-Sy Thao, in charge of data for the Government of New Caledonia.
In his Opening Speech, Vaimu’a Muliava, guest of honor and Member of the Government of New Caledonia in charge of Digital Transition, underlined the importance of data and invited Pacific member countries and territories representatives to encourage their data specialists to enter the next Pacific Dataviz Challenge Edition in 2024.
