The Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development was adopted in September 2015 at the United Nations Summit on Sustainable Development. In a balanced way it combines three dimensions of sustainable development – economic, social and environmental – intertwined by 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The Agenda 2030 is universal; its objectives to be achieved by 2030 will be implemented by all countries of the world. The goals and targets are supposed to stimulate action in areas of critical importance for humanity and the planet: people, planet, prosperity, peace and partnership.

At global, regional and national levels, sets of indicators are adopted to monitor progress towards achieving these goals. Presented below are the values of selected sustainable development goals indicators for Slovenia. These are derived from a set of indicators prepared by Eurostat to monitor progress towards achieving the goals at the EU level. More information can be found on the new SURS website dedicated to the sustainable development goals indicators.
