Monitoring of sustainable development in Finland
In 2015, UN Member States agreed on the action plan and goals for sustainable development that steer the promotion of sustainable development in the years 2016 to 2030. Agenda2030 comprises 17 global goals and 169 targets (Sustainable Development Goals, SDGs).
In Finland, Statistics Finland is responsible for the national collection, updating and publication of indicator data. Statistics Finland also reports follow-up indicator data concerning Finland.
At the moment, data are not available for all global indicators from national or international sources. Statistics Finland continues to supplement the data by exploring new data sources and by looking for possible replacing indicators. International development work is also made to complement the data sources.
The Prime Minister's Office maintains the website on sustainable development where information can be found on the implementation and monitoring of Agenda2030 in Finland.
