On March 20, 2015, Jeffrey Sachs, Director of the Earth Institute and SDSN, presented SDSN’s final report on Indicators and a Monitoring Framework for Sustainable Development Goals: Launching a data revolution for the SDGs to the UN Secretary-General Ban-ki Moon at the UN Academic Impact Seoul Forum.

The Indicators report, the result of over 18 months of consultative work with the contributions of nearly 500 organizations and thousands of individuals, outlines a tiered monitoring framework at the national, global, regional, and thematic levels, and presents a concise set of 100 Global Monitoring Indicators. This limited number of indicators can comprehensively track all 169 OWG targets while balancing countries’ capacities and domestic monitoring commitments.
