The monitoring and reporting of statistics in relation to the progress of the SDGs is the responsibility of the Statistics Department. Additionally, the government is working on strengthening monitoring capacities, through the establishment of a National Statistical System and the creation of a Framework for Monitoring, evaluation and review, for the implementation of the National Development Plan, as general scheme that integrates the SDGs. Thus, this new framework will be a second instance of follow-up for the 2030 Agenda.
