The second edition of the Road Map on Statistics for SDGs aims to provide guidance to members of national statistical systems and other stakeholders on how to best navigate the complex task of measuring the achievement of the goals and targets of the 2030 Agenda. By doing so, it strives to strengthen reliable data-based national information systems and support efforts to achieve the Goals. The Road Map covers different aspects related to the work, such as national coordination, reporting on global SDG indicators, tracking progress at various levels, quality assurance, leave no one behind, communication, Voluntary National Reviews and capacity development. Frequently Asked Questions and a glossary aim to explain in an easily understandable way the issues and terms used. Many examples of how countries are implementing the Road Map are provided on a dedicated website to inspire and help learn from experiences.
The Road Map can be used in communications with other stakeholders involved in implementing the SDGs, like policy makers, academia, civil society, private sector and media, to explain the issues related to statistics for SDGs, and the critical role of official statistics.
The Road Map was developed by the Conference of European Statisticians’ Steering Group on Statistics for SDGs, which includes 15 countries, the Interstate Statistical Committee of Commonwealth of Independent States, Eurostat, OECD and UNECE. The Heads of statistical offices of more than 60 countries from UNECE, OECD and beyond approved the Road Map in June 2021.
