Measuring Sustainable Development to 2030: A view from Turkey – The implementation of the SDGs is expected to allow countries space to identify their own national priorities within the broad sustainable development framework. A key question in this context is how the SDGs will be effectively applied across countries at different stages of development. In an effort to address this question, this report examines what the SDGs could mean for Turkey. It is part of a broader multi-country initiative – the Post-2015 Data Test – which looks at how the SDGs could be applied and measured across a range of low-, middle- and high-income countries.
Discussion Paper on Follow-up and Review of the Post-2015 Development Agenda – This UN Sustainable Development discussion paper outlines some key elements on follow-up and review which have emerged from the intergovernmental negotiations on the Post-2015 Development Agenda thus far, particularly the Stocktaking session in January. The paper opens with a section on possible general principles for a follow-up and review framework before moving on to options for the levels at which this framework might operate. An illustrative framework for follow-up and review is included in Annex 1.
