The Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH (GIZ) is the German Development Agency, offering services in the fields of education and international cooperation for sustainable development. It is committed to work that improves people’s lives throughout the world.
Teralytics collaborated with the GIZ Data Lab, which unites thinkers and practitioners to promote an effective, fair and responsible use of digital data for sustainable development.
The GIZ Data Lab used Teralytics’ daily mobility data provided at county level throughout Germany as part of a prototype project to identify particularly successful counties (so-called positive deviants) and their strategies during the Covid-19 pandemic.
As part of the project, the use of Teralytics’ insights helped in the following areas:
- Development of a general understanding of mobility patterns in Germany during different phases of the pandemic
- Modelling and understanding the influence of mobility patterns and other relevant factors on pandemic development
- Contribution to the identification of potential positive deviants among counties that have performed particularly well in terms of COVID outcomes
This is how the GIZ Data Lab experienced the cooperation with Teralytics:
