Nations Begin To Assess Capacity, Create Plans For Monitoring SDG Progress

Devex: What country governments need to better measure the SDGs
“Measuring progress toward the Sustainable Development Goals is a daunting task for all countries, with 230 distinct indicators to quantify. The specific challenges for low- and middle-income countries are starting to become clear as states assess their capacity, determine their needs, and create action plans. … Most countries have started by assessing what data exists and its quality. Almost all countries, including the most developed, lack at least some data needed to measure the SDG indicators…” (Saldinger, 8/10).
