Each of the goals in the table below is included in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development which was approved in September 2015. For each goal a number of targets are defined as well. The 2030 Agenda provides that for each target, there are one or more indicators to measure the gap between the current and envisioned situation (#asd75 - A global indicator framework).

Such measurement is relevant to planning as explained in the Principle/goal to plan pattern.
