SDSN seeks expert input on ‘Indicators and a Monitoring Framework for the SDGs’

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

This draft report presents a comprehensive indicator framework for the Open Working Group goals and outlines major indicator gaps that must be filled over the next twelve months. The draft incorporates comments from hundreds of organizations and has been prepared in consultation with the UN Statistics Division.

The SDSN 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.
