Atlas of Sustainable Development Goals 2017: from world development indicators

Source(s):  World Bank Institute (WBG)

The Atlas of Sustainable Development Goals 2017 uses maps, charts and analysis to illustrate, trends, challenges and measurement issues related to each of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The Atlas primarily draws on World Development Indicators (WDI) - the World Bank's compilation of internationally comparable statistics about global development and the quality of people's lives. 

The Atlas aims to reflect the breadth of the Goals themselves and presents national and regional trends and snapshots of progress towards the UN's seventeen SDGs. Reaching the targets and overcoming the challenges facing the Goals requires a sharper focus on better financing, better data, and better methods of delivery, and working together with partners. The Atlas also provides data useful for other international projects with certain subgoals in line with international agreements. Examples include the following: 

  • Goal 11.b aims to substantially increase the number of cities and human settlements adopting and implementing integrated policies and plans towards inclusion, resource efficiency, mitigation and adaptation to climate change, resilience to disasters, and develop and implement, in line with the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015–2030, holistic disaster risk management at all levels.
  • Goal 13.1 aims to strengthen resilience and adaptive capacity to climate-related hazards and natural disasters in all countries.
