2 years after Agenda 2030, most governments still face difficulties in measuring and tracking the SDGs

2 years after Agenda 2030, most governments still face difficulties in measuring and tracking the SDGs

In September 2015, 193 countries signed Agenda 2030, with a list of 17 goals that the world agreed to pursue. Six months later, the United Nations Statistical Commission created a preliminary SDG indicator framework, breaking these 17 goals into 230 indicators.

The indicator framework is not the end of the story – on the contrary, it is the beginning.

– Wu Hongbo, former UN Under-Secretary-General

Since then, each UN country team has been working with their local government to contextualize the global SDG indicators — creating a custom set of SDG indicators for each country, based on its needs, available data, and local context. This is still in progress around the world.

After these national frameworks are closed, states around the world will have to further contextualize and customize their national frameworks. Then, most importantly, each government will have to figure out how to get the data it needs to track its unique framework.

The SDG indicators will require an unprecedented amount of data to be produced and analysed — and it is evident that this will pose a significant challenge for national statistical systems, in developing as well as developed countries.

Multi-layered analysis of every SDG goal, target and indicator

  • The main view for each SDG shows an overview of the goal's targets and details on how this goal is linked to other goals.

  • The next screen shows a view of all targets measured against national benchmarks, including state and district filters.

  • SDG targets can be sorted by performance to easily identify which targets are lagging and need more focus or funding.

  • Filtering by target shows a deep dive into indicators for each target, disaggregated by time, social strata, location, and more.

  • Clicking on any indicator shows a map view, where users can compare indicators across a region or further filter by time period.

Developed in collaboration with the United Nations

We worked with in partnership with the UN Resident Coordinator's Office (India) for a full year to build this solution.

Numerous rounds of consultation, testing and design iteration with UN agencies and stakeholders from around the world helped us develop a custom visual framework just for tracking and measuring SDGs.

Our solution is highly detailed with nested levels and methods of analysis, all while being incredibly simple to learn and use on a daily basis.

1. Map existing programs to SDGs
2. Identify trigger indicators

Outcome indicators give real-time granular insights

  • Data for SDG indicators is often out of date. To get better insight on SDG progress, we map existing program data to relevant SDG targets.

  • We then pair map-based comparisons with trigger indicators, which shows exactly where and how you need to act to jumpstart SDG progress.
