2nd Update On Process To Develop Indicator Framework

On 28 July 2015, Mr. John Pullinger, the Chair of the United Nations Statistical Commission informed the intergovernmental negotiations on the post-2015 development agenda on the progress of the development of the indicator framework for the goals and targets.

Mr. Pullinger informed Member States that the work is well under way and that the Inter-Agency and Expert Group on SDG indicators (IAEG-SDGs) has given itself a strict timeline foreseeing multiple rounds of consultations and opportunities for observers and major groups and stakeholders to provide inputs to the discussions. He stressed that the work of the IAEG-SDGs will strictly follow the guidance received by Member States and expressed his appreciation that Member States have recognised the importance of strengthening statistical capacities in developing countries.
