SDGs indicators: more about politics than statistics
Deliver2030.org "Statistics can shape the way in which we perceive the world. Numbers have repeatedly been abused to influence public debate.
This is true for the entire ideological spectrum, but particularly so in recent years to entrench the neoliberal worldview and the power of markets.
Later this month, the UN Statistical Commission will discuss the SDG indicators as proposed by the Inter-Agency and Expert Group. It is thus warranted and timely to take a closer look at the proposed list." (This blog is written by Jan Vandemoortele, Co-architect of the MDGs and critical friend of the SDGs) Photo: flickr
