Fourteenth meeting of the IAEG-SDGs

23 - 25 Oct 2023   Copenhagen, Denmark
CPH Conference-DGI Byen

The fourteenth meeting of the Inter-agency and Expert Group on Sustainable Development Goal Indicators (IAEG-SDGs) will be held in person from 23 to 25 October 2023 at the CPH Conference-DGI Byen in Copenhagen, Denmark.

This meeting will follow the same format as previous in-person IAEG-SDG meetings. There will be a members-only meeting taking place during the first day (23 October) and plenary sessions taking place during the next two days (24 - 25 October). During the plenary session, all countries, international and regional agencies and entities, and other stakeholders are 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.

REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED. The registration period to attend in person was from 16 August to 1 September 2023. Due to space limitations, not everyone was accepted. Approved registrants have been notified.

Note: Neither UNSD nor Statistics Denmark offer supporting funds to facilitate the travel of participants. Attendance must therefore be completely self-financed, including travel, accommodation and any other related expenses.
