Open Consultation on Grey Indicators

9 - 15 DEC 2015


As agreed by the IAEG-SDG members, an open consultation on the proposed SDG Indicators coded 'grey' took place from 9 am EST, Wednesday, 9 December to 9 pm EST, Tuesday, 15 December.

The consultation was open to observers (non-IAEG Member States and representatives of regional commissions and regional and international agencies) and other stakeholders (civil society, academia and private sector). The consultation focuses on indicators that are coded 'grey', indicating that additional work and discussion are needed before reaching a final agreement on them.

The inputs and comments provided will be considered by the IAEG-SDG Members in their final phase of preparation of the indicator proposal for submission to the Statistical Commission. Please note that the final decision on the number, type and formulation of the indicators in the final proposal of the set of global indicators will be taken by the IAEG-SDG Members.

Results from open consultation on 'grey' indicators are now available
