Tracking progress on Sustainable Development Goals for the regions of Ukraine: choosing indicators and setting baselines
May 9, 2019
The discussion paper tends to assess the situation in the regions of Ukraine from the positions of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), adopted by United Nations in 2015.
Based on the officially localized national SDGs and appropriate indicators for Ukraine, the authors designed their own vision of the system of indicators, available in regional disaggregation, that estimate SDGs at the level of each region of Ukraine in 2015 as baseline year for SDG progress at global and, in particular, Ukrainian levels.
The study gave an opportunity to compare the situation in the regions of Ukraine from the viewpoint of their balanced development based on SDGs criteria, as well as to line out the leading regions and troubled regions, forming the integral indicators for SDGs for Ukraine.
