Compact2025 is an initiative for ending hunger and undernutrition by 2025. A key component of the initiative is creating a Knowledge and Innovation (K&I) Hub to provide policymakers and practitioners with pragmatic, evidence-based guidance on scaling up success stories to end hunger and undernutrition. Rua Design worked with the Compact2025 to create the resources hub, creating a page of resources with highlighted items, browse and search. Technically, the HUB works with an API to display the records from a document repository on the page and uses Javascript for categorizing, sorting, search and filtering. The page makes use of a custom Wordpress Plugin developed by Rua Design.
