Sustainability Tracking with the SDGs

It is often said that you get what you measure. Defining sustainability can be a challenge, however, much groundwork has already been laid at the international level in defining and tracking progress towards sustainable development. Key targets and indicators from the international Agenda 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will be applied to identify gaps and opportunities in this cross-sector data analysis report. The seventeen SDGs are pictured below for reference. OPD and the PDAC are working within existing data sets to compile relevant data to track the current condition of critical resources and track progress towards meeting these goals.This planning process will ensure application of existing information and baseline data in the development a multi-sector resources plan that can be fully integrated into a stakeholder supported comprehensive development plan with short- and long-range guidance on development objectives, standards, and principles that reflects and is operationalized through supporting plans and projects as well as rules and policies across agencies and sectors in the CNMI.
