Informal comments to IAEG Members on suggested SDG indicators
In these informal comments to the Inter-Agency Expert Group (IAEG-SDGs), Saferworld looks at the latest global indicators proposal. The global indicators will form part of an accountability framework that needs to be ambitious yet actionable if peace, governance and justice issues are to be effectively implemented and monitored.
This briefing reviews the suggested indicators for Goal 16 made in the IAEG’s August 11 proposal. Based on an assessment of their relevance to each target, established best-practice, known data sources, and feasibility for universal use, we have suggested keeping 12 and removing 6 of the suggested indicators. We have put forward 6 replacement indicators along with 5 additions.
Date: August 2015
The full range of indicators proposed for Goal 16 in the August 11th consultation document present a strong basis for the IAEG to prioritise those for global use.
