What is Open SDG?

Open SDG is an open source, free-to-reuse platform for managing and publishing data and statistics related to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

It is built exclusively with open-source libraries and tools and can be hosted and maintained using free services.

Open SDG is the result of collaboration between the UK Office for National Statistics (ONS), US government, the nonprofit Center for Open Data Enterprise (CODE) and members of the Open SDG community.

Why choose a reporting platform?

Using a reporting platform such as Open SDG facilitates countries and organisations to:

  • Gather, disseminate, and track national or local data on the SDG indicators, including identification of data gaps.
  • Improve access to official statistics and metadata.

For countries, a national reporting platform also enables them to:

  • Report country national data to be harmonized for international purposes (i.e. UN global indicator database).
  • Improve communication between data providers, National Statistics Offices (NSOs), custodian agencies, and other stakeholders.
