Sustainable Development Goals: how are we tracking?

Sustainable Development Goals: how are we tracking?
Top 10 countries by the percentage of women in national parliaments

The U.N.’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), comprising seventeen global goals set up in 2015, are due to be achieved by 2030.

How are we tracking? You can find The Sustainable Development Goals Report from two years ago in ArcGIS StoryMaps format.

The (authoritative) data behind these goals is available from the Open SDG Data Hub. Whether you’re interested in creating data visualisations focussed on how your country is tracking or want to map and explore these goals across the world to get the big (and more up-to-date) picture, this is a good starting point.

P.S. Do you want to create your own SDGs app and share it? Then, you might find this tutorial helpful:
