Source of the information: 

The UN department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA) and the Development Policy and Analysis Division (DPAD) held an informal presentation of the work being done on the statistical issues to be considered in choosing a new set of indicators to follow the Millenium Development Goals. The work, which represents the collective thinking of over 50 UN entities, presents the lessons learned from the MDG process, the guiding principles and the best practices that can serve to develop the indicators for a new development agenda. The preview of the study “Statistics and Indicators for the post-2015 development agenda” was presented by Robert Johnston, consultant for DPAD/DESA, on Friday, June 21. This document represents the collective thinking of  over 60 UN entities and is intended to support the multiple discussions taking place about the post-2015  agenda and the identification of sustainable development goals.

The final version of the study will be launched at a side event during the ECOSOC High Level Session on July 4, in Geneva.
