Understanding data flows for the SDGs is of interest to countries, custodian agencies, and several UN agencies.

At the request of the 49th UNSC, the co-chair of IAEG-SDGs and CCSA are preparing implementation guidance for countries and custodian agencies on SDG global data flows  The aim of the exercise is to improve the efficiency and transparency in the production of global statistics for SDGs.  

The results from the UNECE CES pilot study will provide practical suggestions to support this effort, which will be submitted for consideration by the IAEG-SDG and CCSA. 

This is an observational study: we are interested in your actual experiences and opinions.  There are no “right or wrong” answers or situations. We would like your descriptions of your “real life” approaches, challenges, and solutions to providing data for the global SDG indicators.

After a page of general questions on your national organization for SDGs,  the questionnaire is composed of two parts. The first part asks you to describe your data flow processes regarding selected indicators. You can choose which indicators to answer. We also encourage you to answer questions for all of the indicators if it is possible for you.
