SDG Papers

Sustainable transport and mobility are key elements in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, as the mapping of UNECE Inland Transport Committee activities against the Sustainable Development Goals has shown. UNECE’s Working Party on Transport Statistics (WP.6) has a well-established collection mechanism for official statistics that can feed into monitoring the transport-related goals, notably through goals 3, 9 and 11. This is reflected in UNECE’s role as partner agency for indicators 3.6.1, 9.1.1, 9.1.2 and 11.2.1, and its key role within the Sustainable Mobility for All initiative.
Given the complexity of the task of monitoring indicators across many goals, and with indicators ideally broken down by gender, urban/rural, focus on vulnerable people etc., UNECE has decided to publish a series of short articles on how our existing transport statistics can be used to directly monitor transport-related SDG progress, and how these data can also feed in to provide insights into progress on many other goals.
