World Bank new release: “The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted in 2015 articulate a new global development agenda to eradicate poverty and shift the world onto a sustainable development path by 2030. The 17 SDGs and their 169 targets are designed as a web of inter-relationships and dependencies, where progress towards one goal can enhance progress on others. A solid framework of indicators and statistical data will be key to inform policymaking, monitor progress and ensure accountability. This year’s The Little Green Data Book provides 50 indicators for 200 countries.
