The Stakeholder Forum for a Sustainable Future developed a new tool to help governments and other stakeholders to create sustainable development goals (SDGs) and targets.

A new tool has been developed to help governments and other stakeholders to create and choose ambitious and effective sustainable development goals (SDGs) and targets, which fulfil the commitments made by world leaders at Rio+20, reported the Stakeholder Forum for a Sustainable Future in May 2014.
 
The ‘Tests of Success for the SDGs’, produced by the Stakeholder Forum for a Sustainable Future and partners, aims to help guide and assess the international process currently underway to create a new set of global goals to eradicate poverty through sustainable development.
 
Assessing the progress made in designing the SDGs
 
A large and diverse range of goals and targets are being suggested for inclusion in the new global framework. This tool provides some objective parameters to assist members of the UN General Assembly’s Open Working Group on SDGs in choosing which ones to take forward, as well as to ensure that they fulfil the standards agreed by governments at the 2012 UN Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20).
 
The tool also provides an accountability instrument for stakeholders to use in assessing the progress made in designing the SDGs, and with which to hold policy-makers to account for the final outcome.

Five key ‘filter’ categories

 
The ‘Tests of Success for the SDGs’ focuses on five key ‘filter’ categories: universality and differentiation; integration; transformation; communicability; and measurement and implementation.
