12 July 2022
- The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), in the framework of the “Partnering for SDG acceleration” project, implemented jointly with the Ministry of Finance and Economy of Turkmenistan with the support of the Office of the UN Resident Coordinator in Turkmenistan, helps with the process of developing a National Platform for reporting on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) indicators for the State committee of Turkmenistan on statistics.
The Platform acts as a software for the collection, processing and dissemination of SDG data, as well as involves the supply of technical equipment to ensure functioning of the system. The platform is at the stage of development for subsequent transitional phase to online mode.
The creation of a national platform is aimed at developing a system for monitoring and measuring progress towards achieving the SDGs in Turkmenistan, assisting in the preparation of the national reports to treaty bodies within the country’s international obligations and other national SDGs progress reports, as well as ensuring an access for a wide range of users to the national SDGs Indicators Database. This, in turn, will accelerate the process of developing recommendations for information flows monitoring and will help to increase the national statistical capacity of Turkmenistan on SDGs reporting.
