Summary of the comments from IAEG-SDG members and observers received through the open consultation on the List of Indicator Proposals is now available

A document containing a summary of comments received on the List of Indicator Proposals of 11 August 2015 during the two rounds of consultations with members and observers of the Inter-agency and Expert group on Sustainable Development Goal Indicators has been posted online.

It presents comments according to three different categories, namely:

  • “Suggestions for Modifications and Replacement Indicators”
  • “Suggestions for Additional Indicators”, and
  • “Additional Comments”,

indicating the name of the country or organisation that provided each comment. It also contains two additional columns: ‘Possible compiling entity’ and ‘Tier’ which were carried over from the August 11 document based on the request by multiple countries.

Please note that no changes have been made to the list of indicator proposals of 11 August 2015. Therefore, the status of development of the suggested indicators (so-called tiers I, II, and III) still needs to be re-evaluated on the basis of information provided since then.

A very large number of comments were received during the two rounds of consultations and those comments are reflected in the summary to the best possible extent. Users are requested to refer to the original comments for complete information.
