17 Goals to Transform the Pacific
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were born at the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development in Rio de Janeiro in 2012 as a follow-on from the Millenium Development Goals (MDGs). The SDGs, officially known as “Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”, are a set of 17 “Global Goals” which will form the blueprint for development policy and funding up until 2030. The objective was to produce a set of universal goals that meet the urgent environmental, political and economic challenges facing our world.
This is the Statistics for Development’s “mock-up” platform for exploring, visualising and downloading Pacific data relating to the SDGs. The Pacific’s progress against each Goal is measured using a set of globally agreed indicators.
This portal, and the indicator database behind it are being developed with generous funding from New Zealand.
