SDG indicators under OHCHR’s custodianship


To monitor the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the UN General Assembly adopted the global SDG indicators framework in July 2017 (A/RES/71/313). The framework comprises 232 indicators, including four human rights indicators (see Human Rights Indicators: A Guide to Measurement and Implementation) for which OHCHR is responsible in terms of methodological development, data compilation and dissemination in the SDG progress report:
