Australian Government's Reporting Platform

This is the Australian Government's Reporting Platform on the Sustainable Development Goals Indicators (SDGs). The platform is designed to provide a single point of access for anyone interested in Australian Government data on the SDG Indicators. The platform forms part of a comprehensive package of reporting on Australia's progress on the SDGs that includes Australia's 2018 Voluntary National Review and the Australian SDGs website.

The reporting status

Each SDG Indicator has been assessed and provided with a colour code to indicate the availability of a dataset. There are four colour codes. Green applies to datasets that are reported online. Orange means exploring data sources. Red is used if there is no suitable Australian data source or the Indicator is deemed not relevant. Grey appplies to the Indicators that have no globally agreed methdology.

The SDG Indicators

The SDGs comprise of 17 goals, 169 targets and 232 indicators. The SDGs, together with the Addis Ababa Action Agenda on Financing for Development (a global plan for financing the SDGs), form the 2030 Agenda, the globally agreed roadmap for building a stable and prosperous world to 2030 and beyond.

The Voluntary National Review

Australia's first Voluntary National Review (VNR) on implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals was launched by The Hon Julie Bishop MP, Minister for Foreign Affairs, on 15 June 2018 and delivered to the United Nations High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development on 17 July 2018.
