Statistics Sweden’s work on the SDGs and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development
On 25 September 2015, the world’s governments adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, including 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In doing so, they committed to leading the world towards a sustainable and fair future by 2030. The countries also committed to engage in systematic follow-up and review of the implementation of the Agenda at national, regional and global levels.
Statistics Sweden has been tasked by the Government to coordinate the indicator-based follow-up on how Sweden lives up to the goals and targets in the 2030 Agenda. This page contains information about Statistics Sweden’s efforts related to the 2030 Agenda. The indicators can be found on Statistics Sweden’s theme page on the 2030 Agenda.
The 2030 Agenda contains 17 global goals and 169 targets. At the global level, the goals are followed up with the help of around 230 indicators. These indicators, and about 60 more nationally adapted indicators, constitute the national indicator list that is used in Sweden for the national follow-up.
Statistics Sweden has been tasked by the Government to publish the national indicator list annually. The list may be updated between publications, after consultations with the authorities and ministries responsible for the indicators.
More information on the 2030 Agenda and the 17 global goals is available on the Swedish Government website.
