Monitoring of the Sustainable development goals until 2030
Monitoring of the Sustainable development goals until 2030

From January 1, 2016, the world officially launched the Sustainable Development Agenda until 2030 - an active transformation plan, which is based on 17 sustainable development goals aimed at solving pressing global problems.

The 17 sustainable development goals and 169 objectives (SDGs) are aimed at the realization of human rights for all, they are comprehensive and indivisible and balance the three components of sustainable development: economic, social and environmental. These goals and objectives will stimulate the actions of national governments over the next 15 years in areas of great importance to humanity and the planet.

Official statistics will play a key role in providing data for the implementation of SDG monitoring and related tasks.

In addition, two tasks in the 17th SDGs are directly focused on improving its quality, namely:

Task 17.18: «By 2020, enhance capacity-building support to developing countries, including for least developed countries and small island developing States, to increase significantly the availability of high-quality, timely and reliable data disaggregated by income, gender, age, race, ethnicity, migratory status, disability, geographic location and other characteristics relevant in national contexts».

Task 17.19: «By 2030, build on existing initiatives to develop measurements of progress on sustainable development that complement gross domestic product, and support statistical capacity-building in developing countries».

Bureau of National statistics of the ASPR RK, together with members of 5 Interagency Working Groups established within the framework of the Coordinating Council on Sustainable Development Goals, reviewed 278 global and national SDG indicators, of which 16 global indicators were deemed irrelevant for Kazakhstan.

To date, the system of national indicators for monitoring the SDGs includes 262 indicators:

- 146 global indicators adopted without change;

- 44 global indicators include small changes;

- 30 alternative / proxy indicators have been proposed;

- additionally included 42 national indicators.

More detailed information on each indicator is in the subsections of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
