Developed by High-Level Task Force for the ICPD.
The indicators proposed in this document represent transformative and strategic options for Member States – both policy decision-makers and statisticians – to consider as they develop this key foundation of the new Agenda’s follow-up, monitoring and accountability framework. The document is intended to serve as a resource that offers a menu of leading options at global, thematic, regional and/or national levels, as well as fill critical gaps in policy-driven statistics. The proposals are designed to further a people-centred agenda, complete the unfinished business of the MDGs and identify multi-purpose indicators, using an evidence-based approach that reflects ‘smart investments’1 with multiplier effects for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Contents include both well-established indicators, as well as more aspirational options in line with the new Agenda’s forward-looking level of ambition.
Areas of Focus: Human rights and non-discrimination, health, education, gender equality, violence against women and girls, adolescents and youth, sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights, and access to justice. Contents are select and non-exhaustive, without prejudice to many other target areas and indicator proposals necessary for a robust, meaningful framework.
