Our Work: Tracking Progress on the SDGs

Good data and clear metrics are critical for each country to take stock of where it stands on the SDGs, devise pathways for achieving the goals, and track progress. Since 2016, the SDSN and Bertelsmann Stiftung have published the annual global SDG Index and Dashboards. The methodology has been peer-reviewed (Schmidt-Traub et al., 2017) and was audited in 2019 by the European Commission Joint Research Centre (Papadimitriou, Neves, and Becker, 2019). To provide a better analysis of country and regional contexts, and to improve policy relevance, the SDSN in collaboration with numerous partners has also developed regional and sub-national SDG indices and dashboards.

Global SDG Index


The Sustainable Development Report (formerly the SDG Index & Dashboards) is a global assessment of countries' progress towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. It is a complement to the official SDG indicators and the voluntary national reviews.

All data presented on this website are based on the publication Sachs et al. (2021): The Decade of Action for the Sustainable Development Goals. Sustainable Development Report 2021. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press.
