The United Nations General Assembly, in its Resolution 70/1 Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (September 2015) , established that the 17 goals and 169 targets of the Agenda should be monitored using a set of world indicators .
The United Nations Statistical Commission agreed, at its 47th session, on a list of 230 indicators, which were subsequently revised to 232 indicators, which were finally adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in July 2017 (Resolution 71 / 313) and that constitute the global indicator framework of the 2030 Agenda.

The indicators are classified into three levels, according to their methodological development and data availability:
- Level I: methodology and standards are available and data is periodically produced by countries.
- Level II: methodology and standards are available, but data is not periodically produced by countries.
- Level III: no established methodology or standards are available.
The level classification contains 98 Level I indicators, 71 Level II indicators and 70 Level III indicators. In addition to these, there are 5 indicators that have multiple levels (the different indicator components are classified at different levels).
Since the methodology for Tier III indicators is still under development, national statistical systems will not be required to provide data for these indicators until the relevant methodology and collection mechanism have been defined.
The United Nations has created a knowledge platform for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) .
It has also developed a platform for dissemination of the global indicator databases of the SDGs .
