Towards an OECD localised indicator framework for SDGs

Measuring where cities and regions stand against the SDGs (and their national average) is not an end in itself, but primarily a tool for dialogue that can shape better policies across levels of government. To shed light on regional disparities and go beyond the national average reported under the UN Global Indicator Framework, many regions and cities are defining place-specific targets and indicators. However, what is currently missing is a consensual, comparable and standardised localised SDGs indicator framework to benchmark performances within countries and across regions and cities. The OECD localised indicator framework aims to bridge this gap and support public actions in cities, regions and countries.
