The 2030 Agenda: An Unprecedented Statistical Challenge

Steve MacFeely : 2018

The paper provides a critical examination of the SDG indicators from a statistical perspective and outlines some measurement challenges. It notes that SDG indicators are only performance metrics as they inform whether a target is being achieved or not. However, it argues that relatively little discussion has addressed the additional data required to inform and design integrated policies in order to implement actions to achieve the SDG targets.
