About

While all SDG targets and indicators affect the lives and well-being of children, adolescents and youth in some way, UNICEF has identified 35 indicators that most directly concern children, out of a total of 232 in the global SDG monitoring framework. The list of indicators for global SDG monitoring, measuring the 169 targets across the 17 goals, was formally approved at the 48th session of the UN Statistical Commission and subsequently adopted by the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) in June 2017.
