The SDG Index and Dashboard Report provides a report card for country performance on the historic Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It describes countries’ progress towards achieving the SDGs and indicate areas requiring faster progress. The global SDG Index score and scores by goal can be interpreted as the percentage of achievement. The difference between 100 and countries’ scores is therefore the distance in percentage that needs to be completed to achieving the SDGs and goals. It is a complement to the official SDG indicators and voluntary country-led review processes. It uses publicly available data published by official data providers and other organizations including research centers and non-governmental organizations. Governments and civil society alike can therefore utilize the SDG Index and Dashboards Report to identify priorities for action, understand key implementation challenges, track progress, ensure accountability, and identify gaps that must be closed in order to achieve the SDGs by 2030.
The SDG National Reporting Initiative facilitates greater information-sharing for reporting on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) between international, regional, and local communities. SDG reporting refers to the act of publishing and disseminating data and statistics on the SDG indicators for key stakeholders.
The SDG Pulse is an annual statistical publication reporting on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The purpose of this report is to provide an update on the evolution of a selection of custodian or co-custodian SDG indicators along with complementary statistics that reflect UNCTAD’s broad mandate.
This report also presents some case studies from UNCTAD’s development programme from a statistical perspective – presenting UNCTAD’s activities and successes in hard numbers. These case studies are important as they also illustrate the Results Based Management approach being adopted by UNCTAD – helping us to improve our responsiveness and accountability to member states.
Every year, the SDG Pulse highlights a specific aspect of the 2030 Agenda and discuss this issue from the slant or perspective of statistics. For the first edition (2019), some aspects of inequality are discussed, including global economic and income inequalities, and also an emerging new dimension for inequality in a data driven world – access to data.

The Humanitarian Data Exchange (HDX) is an open platform for sharing data across crises and organisations. Launched in July 2014, the goal of HDX is to make humanitarian data easy to find and use for analysis.

The SDG16 Data Initiative is a collective project by a consortium of organisations seeking to support the open tracking of the global commitments made by more than 194 countries on peace, justice, and strong institutions.
The initiative aims to complement the current efforts underway to develop an official indicator framework for monitoring the SDGs and respond to the gap in comprehensive data on SDG16 issues. The Inter-agency Expert Group on SDG Indicators (IAEG-SDGs) has identified 23 global indicators under SDG16’s 12 targets. It is intended that national statistical systems will eventually produce the majority of the data for these indicators. The UN Statistical System and other global organizations will then collate this official data at the global level.
