Adolescent Atlas for Action (A3) Website

Population Council’s Girl Innovation, Research, and Learning (GIRL) Center
Background + Challenge

The GIRL Center at the Population Council has been a leader in providing policymakers, practitioners, investors, and advocates (“decision-makers”) around the world with the data-driven, evidence-based, updated information they need to make informed investment and policy decisions on adolescents. The GIRL Center and their donors believe that tremendous opportunity exists for economic growth and development in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) through investing in adolescents. The Adolescent Atlas for Action (A3) website was created as a hub to efficiently and accessibly support decision-makers focused on adolescents around the world.


This project called upon our strategic, conceptual, and planning skills, as well as our design and development expertise. The project team, led by the GIRL Center, was comprised of Owl’s Head strategists, designers and developers, and data analysts and visualization experts from Barcelona-based OneTandem.


The A3 website was developed with funding from the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF), and the Danish International Development Agency (DANIDA).
