Monitoring system

The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) must be achieved collectively, and implemented by both industrialized and developing countries. The United Nations has set up a monitoring and assessment system to match this ambition: universal and regular, it is also transparent and results-oriented. It combines a solid statistical system for assessing countries’ progress and the road still ahead, with an accountability mechanism that encourages countries to carry out assessments and annual reviews of implementation in a dedicated forum.
