The United Nations Development Programme and the State Statistics Committee of Azerbaijan launched a National Information Portal on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) today recognising the crucial importance of strengthening the statistical capacity in the country.
Responding to a growing demand for national and international data to track and monitor the progress towards the implementation of the SDGs, the new portal introduces an interactive dashboard, which collects consolidated data on the SDGs from a number of designated government institutions.

To help countries benchmark and reduce the time and cost of trading across border, the UN Regional Commissions jointly conduct the UN Global Survey on Trade Facilitation and Paperless Trade. The Survey currently covers 120 countries around the globe, and 47 measures related to the WTO's Trade Facilitation Agreement (TFA), as well as emerging regional and global initiatives on paperless trade or e-trade, such as the recent Framework Agreement on Facilitation of Cross-Border Paperless Trade in Asia and the Pacific (FA-CPT). The Survey leads to the production of a Global Report and five Regional Reports, which aim at providing insightful information for policy makers to harness trade as a key means of implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The Survey is conducted in collaboration with growing number of global and regional partners, since 2015 and every two years.

CRVS systems play a key role in monitoring and facilitating progress towards the SDGs. As the best source of continuous and up to date information on birth, death, health and population statistics, CRVS is needed to measure a wide range of population-based SDG targets. Legal documentation provided by civil registration systems helps to reduce trafficking, statelessness, sexual exploitation and child marriage. Improving CRVS is also an SDG objective in its own right and is covered by Goals 16.9 and 17.19.

SDGs Dashboard displays a given target and its indicators, and provides information on the data value, unit and trends. By clicking on the value, users can view trends over time towards the target. Users can also choose to track and monitor data on the SDGs that are most important to them, or to view country profiles.
