The Commonwealth SDG Tracker presents a comprehensive snapshot of the progress 54 Commonwealth countries are making towards achieving the 169 targets that define the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
The tracker is based on the data that underpins the 2019 SDG Index published by the UN’s Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN). The index is a composite of the most credible data available for 114 indicators including 85 global indicators. However, where there is insufficient data for an official indicator or to overcome data gaps, other metrics from official and unofficial providers are also used in the index. For detailed information on the methodology, data selection, data sources, imputations, construction of the index including normalisation and calculation of thresholds please refer to the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN).
The tracker provides a comprehensive assessment of distance to targets based on the most up to date data available across all Commonwealth countries. The index score signifies a country’s position between the worst (0) and the best or target (100) outcomes – highlighting the strengths and weaknesses of each country on the 17 SDGs.
