In the Assessment of sustainable development indicators, the Federal Planning Bureau assesses for Belgium the trends of 51 indicators towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs, adopted by the United Nations in 2015: Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development). This assessment is the continuation of the ones published since 2005 in the Federal Sustainable Development Reports (Act of 5 May 1997 on sustainable development, text in PDF in French and Dutch).
For 26 of these 51 indicators, policy makers have set a target, a precise value to be reached by 2030. For the other 25 indicators, only a desired direction was determined. The assessment result for each indicator is represented by an icon.
