The statistics in the section of sustainable development provide an overview on how Estonia is moving towards the goals of the global sustainable development agenda.
At the UN summit in 2015, the global sustainable development goals were agreed on by adopting the resolution Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which includes 17 global sustainable development goals with 169 targets.
The Commission for Sustainable Development approved the relevant indicators for Estonia in 2017 to monitor progress towards the new goals. The topic of cultural space, which is not one of the global goals, was added as it was considered also important and relevant for Estonia.
Statistics Estonia has released the publication Indicators of Sustainable Development based on the new goals. Monitoring and comparing trends helps to analyse sustainability in Estonia. It is the basis for making decisions important for Estonia as well globally.
