Transforming Our World: Implementing the 2030 Agenda Through Sustainable Development Goal Indicators

October, 2016

41271The United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development recognizes violence as a threat to sustainability. To serve as a context, this publication provides an overview of the Sustainable Development Goals as they relate to violence prevention by including a summary of key documents informing violence prevention efforts by the World Health Organization (WHO) and Violence Prevention Alliance (VPA) partners. After consultation with the United Nations (UN) Inter-Agency Expert Group on Sustainable Development Goal Indicators (IAEG-SDG), the authors select specific targets and indicators, featuring them in a summary table. The paper assigns attributes that characterize the focus and nature of these indicators and can serve as a preliminary framework for understanding these accountability metrics. A brief analysis of the target indicators and how they relate to promising practices in violence prevention is also included.
