Sustainable Development Report 2021: Public Consultation

The consultation is now closed.

The Bertelsmann Stiftung and the SDSN are pleased to invite you to a public consultation of data used for the upcoming 2021 Sustainable Development Report (previously SDG Index and Dashboards Report), which will be published in June.

Please do not cite or attribute any of the consultation material.

The report covers all UN member states and presents SDG ratings and trends. As in previous years, we rely on published internationally comparable data for all countries reported by international organizations or other data providers.

We are particularly interested to hear your comments on the data sources used, the preliminary dashboards, the thresholds used to denote goal achievement, and the proposed analysis of trend data. Please let us know if you are aware of other data that should be included in the report.

If you have any questions, please contact us at
