The Millennium Institute has released a new version of its Integrated Sustainable Development Goals planning model (iSDG).
The iSDG is a comprehensive simulation tool that generates country-specific development scenarios to show the implications of policy decisions on a country’s progress towards the SDGs.
Efforts at the national and sub-national level are focusing on localising and prioritising the SDGs, with a view to developing policies and programmes to fast-track their achievement. The iSDG model enables countries to meet this crucial challenge, having taken into account national realities, capacities, and levels of development.
The model’s interface allows users to chart potential progress toward each of the SDGs, evaluate synergies and trade-offs among proposed policies and strategies, and foresee their long-term impacts up to 2050. With the iSDG model, countries can pursue a holistic development strategy that balances the three dimensions of sustainable development.
What’s New in Version 1.2
- A total of 78 SDG indicators (or relevant proxies) are covered.
- A new set of advanced tools to deepen the analysis of simulation results.
- Several new policy interventions that can be simulated in isolation or in conjunction with other policies.
- A Synergy Assessment Tool that shows the contribution of a policy intervention to the change observed in any SDG indicator and any synergistic effects resulting from interactions with other interventions.
