The Statistical Yearbook for Asia and the Pacific 2015 presents data for the 58 ESCAP member countries, as well as world, regional, sub-regional and economic aggregates for comparison. For the first time the Yearbook is aligned with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It offers current trends and emerging topics in the Asia-Pacific region, grouped around the themes of people, the environment, the economy and connectivity. It provides the international and regional community with key indicators, objective analyses of the current trends and emerging issues, along with data and charts. In order to maximize the comparability, the data is sourced exclusively from international agencies that adhere to the official global statistical standards.



Strengthening data and statistics to support monitoring

Recognizing the high level of ambition of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, governments also commit to comparably ambitious implantation targets under each of Goals 1-16. Goal 17 of the new Agenda further specifies 19 targets on the means of implementation and a revitalized global partnership for sustainable development to ensure the achievement of the economic, social and environmental development. Specifically, the 19 targets under Goal 17 concern development financing; technology; capacity building; trade; policy and institutional coherence; multi-stakeholder partnerships; and data, monitoring and accountability.
