This is a free-to-reuse platform for managing and publishing data and statistics related to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Akin to the development of the SDGs was the development of a monitoring and evaluation framework to assess progress towards attaining the goals and targets. The 17 goals are underpinned by a framework of global indicators that allow Jamaica and other countries to monitor and report on progress.
