The Agenda 2030 and 17 Sustainable Development Goals give a new impetus to global efforts for achieving sustainable development. We present a set of indicators for Slovenia deriving from a set of indicators prepared by Eurostat to monitor progress towards achieving the goals at the EU level.
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.
PEOPLE – End poverty and hunger in all forms and ensure dignity and equality
PLANET – Protect our planet's natural resources and climate for future generations
PROSPERITY – Ensure prosperous and fulfilling lives in harmony with nature
PEACE – Foster peaceful, just and inclusive societies
PARTNERSHIP – Implement the agenda through a solid global partnership

The indicators published today replace the current set of sustainable development indicators for Slovenia, which were published until 2016. These will no longer be updated; already published data will still be available in the SI-STAT Database. A new set of indicators will be updated annually, presumably by the end of December.
