Istat is proud to present the second edition of the Report on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The UN General Assembly adopted 17 SDGs, with the 2030 Agenda, on 25 September 2015. The selected SDGs represent a shared itinerary for the global community to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all by 2030. To cover different development domains of environmental, social, economic and institutional nature, Goals are divided into 169 Targets.
In 2017, the United Nations Statistical Commission adopted a list of over 200 indicators for monitoring progress made by countries in pursuing the Agenda. They form a complex and continuously evolving system, built around a set of well-established indicators, available for most countries, but also proposing other indicators, some of them not yet produced or precisely defined at the international level.
The process of metadata production and analysis, by the Inter-Agency Expert Group of the UN, with the collaboration of Istat, will lead in 2020 to a revision of the indicator list; another revision is scheduled for 2025.
Well being and sustainability
