Measuring Progress:
Environment and the SDGs

Progress toward the achievement of the environmental dimension of the SDGs is the first step in helping governments and other stakeholders assess where related actions and governance arrangements are working. The United Nations Environment Programme’s (UNEP) Measuring Progress reports aim to improve the understanding of where interlinkages exist between the indicators of the SDG framework, as well as of the types: reinforcing or competing, and strengths of these interlinkages, based on available data. They also provide information on the progress made to achieve the 92 environment-related SDG indicators and identify data gaps and opportunities to close those gaps.

This report builds upon insights and lessons learned from the Measuring Progress: Towards Achieving the Environmental Dimension of the SDGs,  the first publication of the series.
