This Report of the CARICOM Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Indicators presents 109 (of the 125) Unique CARICOM Core SDG Indicators that were recommended to be produced by CARICOM countries.
The United Nations Statistical Commission (UNSC), at its 48th Session, March 2017 had agreed on the global indicator framework for the Goals and Targets of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development as requested by the General Assembly. The General Assembly adopted the Sustainable Development Goal Indicators in its Resolution 71/313. Therefore, the determination of the core set of indicators to be produced by CARICOM SIDS was based solely on those indicators on the list approved at the global level, since comparison is to be made across the world, relative to the “universal call to action to end poverty, to protect the planet and to ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity”.
However, the information on data availability, data sources and on potential new indicators are important inputs in identifying the current gaps that exist in the agreed to global indicators, as well as future work required on the localisation/regionalisation of the indicators similar to what was done with the MDGs so as to have Caribbean Specific SDG indicators (CSDGs) which would be regionally comparable, but not necessary at the international level.
This Report will be updated continually as we receive information on data availability from Member States and Associate Members.
This report is an Adobe Acrobat file which can be viewed only.
