Indicators Update consultation with stakeholders open from 5-7th of November

The recent  meeting of the  Interagency and Expert Group on Sustainable Development Goal Indicators (IAEG-SDGs) in Bangkok saw members reach a general agreement on 159 of the more than 200 draft indicators for the SDGs.

To make it easy to understand the IAEG-SDGs have color coded the indicators. The reached general agreement on those coded green and those that needed extra work are coded in grey. See the report here.
