In 2015 the United Nations adopted 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), with 169 associated targets. To measure the progress of Belgium towards the SDGs, the Interfederal Statistical Institute (website available in French and Dutch) selected a set of 34 indicators, i.e. two per goal. These indicators were first presented in the Belgian Voluntary National Review (VNR 2017, PDF), submitted to the July 2017 United Nations High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development. In the future, other sustainable development indicators will be added to this set of 34 indicators.
The list below gives access to detailed information on each VNR17 indicator.
In the 2017 Assessment, the Federal Planning Bureau assesses for Belgium the trends of 34 sustainable development indicators towards the SDGs.
