The dashboard is a collaborative initiative between the UN Statistical Division
, the Environmental Change Institute at the University of Oxford
within the context of the AIS Task Team work programme
. It aims to monitor weekly port calls from around 1200 ports based on AIS datasets available at the UN Global Platform. This data can be used as a proxy to measure the impact of any disruptions (including COVID-19) to economic activities because only ships contributing to economic activities are included in the port calls.
