Welcome to the IISD data portal on indicators for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Our portal, the first of its kind, provides visualizations of the indicators that countries are choosing to report on for the SDGs: a bottom-up view of national indicator reporting, based on the top-down indicators selected by the United Nations (UN). The indicator data is compiled, as it becomes available, based on reviews of countries’ voluntary reports to the UN High-Level Political Forum. The data will be updated periodically as more countries submit these reports.
