Atlas of Sustainable Development Goals 2017: World Development Indicators.

Guidance and systemization of experiences

The World Bank’s compilation of statistics from over 200 economies is built around World Development Indicators (WDI) - selected indicators have been identified and visualized to analyze trends and challenges, and to catalyze discussion on measurement issues. The Atlas of Sustainable Development Goals 2017 uses maps, charts and analysis to illustrate, trends, challenges and measurement issues related to each of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Given the breadth and scope of the SDGs, the editors have been selective, emphasizing issues considered important by experts in the World Bank's Global Practices and Cross Cutting Solution Areas. The Atlas aims to reflect the breadth of the Goals themselves and presents national and regional trends and snapshots of progress towards the UN's seventeen Sustainable Development Goals: poverty, hunger, health, education, gender, water, energy, jobs, infrastructure, inequalities, cities, consumption, climate, oceans, the environment, peace, institutions, and partnerships. This SDG Atlas presents a visual and engaging guide to the challenges of the SDGs, to help policy makers, managers, and the public alike better understand them. The Atlas helps quantify progress, highlight some of the key issues, and identify the gaps that still remain. The Atlas draws on World Development Indicators, a database of over 1,400 indicators for more than 220 economies, many going back more than 50 years. And it relies on the work of national and international statistical agencies around the world. data.worldbank.org/sdgatlas
