SDG Indicators

Global indicator framework for the Sustainable Development Goals and targets of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development


The following global indicator framework was developed by the Inter-Agency and Expert Group on SDG Indicators (IAEG-SDGs) and agreed upon, including refinements on several indicators, at the 48th session of the United Nations Statistical Commission held in March 2017.

The global indicator framework was adopted by the General Assembly on 6 July 2017 and is contained in the Resolution adopted by the General Assembly on Work of the Statistical Commission pertaining to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (A/RES/71/313), Annex and provided below.

The list includes 232 indicators on which general agreement has been reached. Please note that the total number of indicators listed in the global indicator framework of SDG indicators is 244. However, since nine indicators repeat under two or three different targets (see below), the actual total number of individual indicators in the list is 232.

Indicators in the global indicator framework that repeat are the following:

  1. 8.4.1/12.2.1
  2. 8.4.2/12.2.2
  3. 10.3.1/16.b.1
  4. 10.6.1/16.8.1
  5. 15.7.1/15.c.1
  6. 15.a.1/15.b.1
