AusNZPac Youth SDG Index

A youth-led report using the SDGs to measure progress.

Towards an AusNZPac Youth SDG Index is a youth-led report that is the first in the world to use the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) framework to measure young people’s progress towards sustainable development. The report found that young people were lagging behind the general population on many of the SDGs, showing the value and importance of using the SDGs to measure youth progress. However, the team also encountered several challenges, including in adapting the SDG targets to youth concerns and finding relevant youth-related data. The team  they have therefore called for more focus on the inclusion of youth into the SDG framework.
