SDG Progress Assessment Report
The annual report analyses Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) trends as well as availability of data for monitoring the progress in Asia and the Pacific and its sub-regions. The reports identify areas that need collective decisions for prioritizing acceleration or changing the trend. The main purpose of the reports is to inform decisions at regional forums such as Asia-Pacific Forum on Sustainable Development (APFSD) and Asia-Pacific Commission. The reports also provide an effective communication tool that foster inclusive regional consultations and effective engagement of the stakeholders including media and civil society. The analysis utilizes cross-nationally comparable data from ESCAP database for the global SDGs indicator framework and when necessary supplementary statistics available at the regional and sub-regional levels. The SDGs reports are the continuation of the Statistical Yearbook for Asia and the Pacific.
