World Data Center

World Data Center for Geoinformatics and Sustainable Development (hereinafter, the WDC-Ukraine) has been working in Ukraine since 2006 as a full-member of the World Data System (WDS) of the International Science Council (ISC). WDC-Ukraine specializes on providing interdisciplinary research of complex systems of different nature.

The WDC-Ukraine activities are focused on arrangements for access of Ukrainian scientific community to global information resources of the ISC in Earth Sciences, Planetary and Space Physics and relevant related disciplines, as well as the collection and storage of global and regional data with significant value for research in the field of Sustainable Development and managerial decision-making.

WDC-Ukraine activities includes decision making support for long-term issues of society development in terms of its sustainability; informational support for estimations of sustainable development perspectives and implementation of sustainable development concept in higher education, business and politics.

News & Events



A predictive mathematical model is developed and computer modeling of the coronavirus pandemic is carrying out by experts of the World Data Center for Geoinformatics and Sustainable Development (WDC-Ukraine) to study the impact of this phenomenon on the economy of Ukraine. Calculations based on pessimistic and optimistic scenarios made it possible to estimate the scale of human losses and the time horizons of the growth and extinction of the coronavirus pandemic in Ukraine. The results of the study were published on April 3, 2020 on the Center's website in report  "FORESIGHT COVID-19: IMPACT ON ECONOMY AND SOCIETY".
