Measurement of the Sustainable Development Goals
The 2030 Agenda states that "there can be no sustainable development without peace, and no peace without sustainable development".
UNODC is the custodian, co-custodian or partner agency for 19 indicators intended to measure the progress on the following Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs):
Goal 3. Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages
Goal 5. Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls
Goal 10. Reduce inequality within and among countries
Goal 11. Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable
Goal 15. Protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss
Goal 16. Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels
Custodian agencies are United Nations bodies (and in some cases, other international organizations) responsible for compiling and verifying country data and metadata, and for submitting the data, along with regional and global agregates, to the United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD).

The Centre of Excellence supports countries in Latin America and the Caribbean in the standardization of statistical information on crime and criminal justice to measure progress on these SDG indicators. In addition, it promotes efforts for the development of methodologies for the measurement and analysis of hard-to-measure crimes.
