Measurement of progress towards the SDGs through ICT indicators

 

Date Monday, 12 June 2017, 14:30-16:15 hrs
Location Popov Room 2, ITU Tower, Geneva, Switzerland
Description The session will highlight the measurement of progress towards the SDGs through ICT indicators, beyond the SDG Indicators Monitoring Framework. An initial mapping of ICT indicators to the SDGs based on the Partnership's core list of ICT indicators will be presented, followed by a country example. Parallel work on developing a thematic set of indicators on science, technology and innovation for the SDGs will lead to the launch of a Partnership Task Force on developing a thematic list of ICT indicators for the SDGs. Thematic ICT indicators should help monitor the availability and use of ICT in different sectors relevant to the SDGs. The indicators will be open to feedback from the WSIS stakeholders, during and after the WSIS Forum 2017.
