The Sustainable Development Goals – Tracking Progress and Engaging Stakeholders in Review

The Sustainable Development Goals are a complex and ambitious framework for transformative change. ESCAP is supporting monitoring, review and follow up on the Sustainable Development Goals through its work on statistical capacity building, knowledge products such as the Statistical Yearbook, a dedicated data portal on the Goals, close engagement of the Asia-Pacific Regional Coordination Mechanism as an inter-agency coordination mechanism for the United Nations system at the regional level, and a partnership between ESCAP, ADB and UNDP—known as the Asia-Pacific SDGs Partnership—that will, over the next 15 years, produce high-quality knowledge products to support follow-up and review of the 2030 Agenda and the Sustianable Development Goals.
