This brief note summarizes suggestions for framing Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as well as their Targets and Indicators. These principles are derived from two reports prepared by the Leadership Council of the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN): The Action Agenda for Sustainable Development and Indicators and a monitoring framework for Sustainable Development Goals: Launching a data revolution for the SDGs.  In these reports the SDSN proposes an integrated framework of 10 goals, 30 targets, and 100 indicators, taking into account as comprehensively as possible the set of principles described below. The SDSN is committed to supporting the various processes underway to design and adopt the SDGs by 2015.
