Abstract

While the proposed goals and targets for the emerging Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) have been subject to political negotiations through several stages, the international statistical community was in March 2015 entrusted with developing a set of indicators for monitoring global progress towards 2030, and guided by a continued political oversight after the post-2015 inter-governmental negotiations come to an end this September. This Stats Brief introduces the ongoing process of developing SDG goals and targets illustrated through comparison with the development of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs); and provides the background and status of the current efforts to develop a supporting global monitoring framework.
