Consultation on “Indicators and a Monitoring Framework for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)”

The Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) has launched a global consultation on “Indicators and a Monitoring Framework for the SDGs”

A draft report presents a comprehensive indicator framework for the Open Working Group (OWG) goals and outlines major indicator gaps that must be filled. The draft - prepared in consultation with the UN Statistics Division - incorporates comments from hundreds of organizations.

The SDSN now seeks expert input to improve the framework, fill gaps, and consider the widest possible evidence. All comments should be submitted via the web form. The consultation will run from 16-31 January 2015.

Following the consultation, a revised report incorporating public comments will serve as input into the Expert Group Meeting on SDG Indicators in February 2015, being held in conjunction with the UN Statistical Commission – the body tasked with adopting the final indicator framework.
