The thirteenth meeting of the Inter-agency and Expert Group on Sustainable Development Goal Indicators (IAEG-SDGs) was held in person from 7 to 9 November 2022 at the UN Conference Centre (UNCC) in Bangkok, Thailand. This was the first in-person meeting of the IAEG-SDGs since October 2019 in Addis Ababa.

This meeting followed the same format as the previous in-person IAEG-SDG meetings. There was a members meeting that took place during the first day (7 November) and plenary sessions during the next two days (8 - 9 November). For the plenary session, all countries, international and regional agencies and entities, and other stakeholders were invited to register to attend.

The IAEG-SDGs was established by the Statistical Commission at its 46th session to develop an indicator framework for the monitoring of the Goals and targets of the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development at the global level, and to support its implementation.
