Sustainable Development Goals

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 248 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 and published our second Voluntary National Review (VNR) of the SDGs in 2023.

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 under the UN Global Indicators Framework. 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 was also the chair of the WGSDGI for a two-year term in 2020-2021. The latest 2022 ASEAN SDG Snapshot Report provided an assessment of the region in relation to the SDG achievement at the onset of the global health crisis.
