The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a set of goals under the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (2030 Agenda), which is a global development framework adopted by World Leaders at the UN Sustainable Development Summit in September 2015. It comprises 17 SDGs with 169 targets and there are currently 247 indicators used to measure progress towards reaching the targets.
Singapore supports the 2030 Agenda. Co-led by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Sustainability and the Environment, we undertook our first Voluntary National Review of the SDGs at the UN High-Level Political Forum in July 2018, where we took stock and shared our progress on sustainable development, particularly in areas such as water and sanitation and sustainable cities. For more information on how Singapore supports the 2030 Agenda, please refer to Singapore’s Voluntary National Review 2018 and the SDG microsite by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
To facilitate the reporting and monitoring of the progress in our sustainable development, this SingStat Website page on SDGs provides access to Singapore statistics on SDG targets and indicators. Indicators identified by the ASEAN Statistics Division (ASEANstats) are flagged by the ASEAN logo. More statistics will be added progressively when available.
At the regional front, Singapore Department of Statistics (DOS) is an active member of the ASEAN Working Group on Sustainable Development Goals Indicators (WGSDGI) in monitoring and reviewing the implementation of SDG indicators in ASEAN. DOS is the chair of the WGSDGI for a two-year term in 2020-2021. We saw the successful release of the inaugural ASEAN SDG Indicators Baseline Report 2020 and the launch of the Online Database for ASEAN SDG Indicators in October 2020.
