6 Review of progress on methodological development of Tier III indicators  

The UN Statistical Division (UNSD) requested agencies to provide updated Tier III workplans, focusing particularly on:

Of the current 41 Tier III Indicators:

(a) 7 were proposed for Tier reclassification at the 9th IAEG-SDGs (see Agenda Item 7)

(b) 20 provided updated information for their Tier III work plans

(c) 14 did not provide any updated information –some of them are ‘orphan indicators’, ie have no active custodian agency, or have encountered methodological problems, which caused the development of methodology to stall

Of the 34 in (b) and (c), that their methodological development will be completed by mid- to late-2019. More detailed information was requested, however, on methodological development and when data collection activities will begin. Should no responses be received by the end of May, the indicators will be included in the comprehensive review.
