Nationalization of indicators for Sustainable Development Goals
Jul 3, 2017
Nationalization of Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) implies not only their integration into the national strategic framework, but also the establishment of a system of reporting and assessing the progress in achieving each relevant goal for the Republic of Moldova.
In order to monitor SDGs of the 2030 Agenda, a set of 241 indicators was approved at the global level, on which basis each country will be assessed at the regional and global level. The set of SDG indicators was developed by the group of experts (IAEG-SDGs)1 set up by the United Nations Statistical Commission (46th session), composed of 50 representatives of UN Member States and including international agencies as observers.
During the nationalization of SDGs, the global indicators will be supplemented with additional indicators that reveal the national context and priorities. While identifying national indicators, it is important to comply with the basic criteria for one statistical indicator, as to be universally acceptable and measurable, to correspond with particular quality requirements and to be relevant in the context of nationalized targets.
