At the global level, the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 169 targets of the new agenda will be monitored and reviewed using a set of global indicators. The global indicator framework, developed by the Inter Agency and Expert Group on SDG Indicators (IAEA-SDGs), was adopted by the General Assembly on 6 July 2017 and is contained in the Resolution adopted by the General Assembly on Work of the Statistical Commission pertaining to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (A/RES/71/313), To download the approved framework, visit https://unstats.un.org/sdgs/indicators/indicators-list/ and download document in the available language options.
Governments will also develop their own national indicators to assist in monitoring progress made on the goals and targets. Chief statisticians from Member States are working on the identification of the targets with the aim to have 2 indicators for each target. There will be approximately 300 indicators for all the targets. Where the targets cover cross-cutting issues, however, the number of indicators may be reduced.
