This web application makes it possible to check, visualize and export updated macroeconomic data on countries’ debt.
'DebtHub' is an imitative of the Observatory on Debt in Globalization (ODG), that looks into complex and often structural processes from a critical perspective. ODG makes tools available to facilitate the interpretation of these events, showing their impacts and their risks.
The web application shows a world map with dynamic graphs representing a set of indicators for each country you select. These development indicators allow for a first analysis of the development policies in different countries.
Let’s take an example: using DebtHub we could see the impact of the Deauville Treaty in North African countries for aspects such as child literacy, the percentage of women in senior management posts, or the life expectancy of people who are rights’ bearers in the signatory countries.
DebtHub also comes with other tools to visualize open data from the World Bank, where the data come from. It is an application using open software that anyone can modify to improve it.
You may access the DebtHub tool and brows through its map to make queries. Before doing so, we encourage you to watch this short explanatory video.
