Proportion of Urban Population Living in Slums

On 1 January 2016, the world officially began implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development—the transformative plan of action based on 17 Sustainable Development Goals—to address urgent global challenges over the next 15 years.

The Sustainable Development Goals Database in UNdata presents data for the global SDG indicators that were compiled through the UN System in preparation for the Secretary-Generals annual report on “Progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals.”

The data series respond to the revised global indicator framework that was agreed by the Statistical Commission at its forty-eighth session in March 2017. The database contains SDG indicator series and additional indicator series. The list of SDG indicators is subject to refinement by the United Nations Statistical Commission.
