SDG Tools and Frameworks

Below are links to SDG tools and frameworks:

SDG Industry Matrix

The SDG Industry Matrix aims to inspire and inform greater private sector action to drive inclusive, sustainable prosperity. The Matrix provides industry specific ideas for action with practical examples for each respective SDG. It was founded by the UN Global Compact and KPMG International Cooperative to encourage the private sector to develop innovative approaches regarding a more sustainable and inclusive path to economic growth. This may entail ensuring technologies and services reach low-income earners, ethical resource-efficient supply chains, improving worker skills, and increasing investment in renewable energy.

Tracking Australia’s Progress on the Sustainable Development Goals

This website is the Australian Government's Reporting Platform on the Sustainable Development Goals Indicators (SDGs). The platform is designed to provide a single point of access for anyone interested in Australian Government data on the SDG Indicators. The platform forms part of a comprehensive package of reporting on Australia's progress on the SDGs that includes Australia's 2018 Voluntary National Review (VNR) and the Australian SDGs website. The Reporting Platform is a whole-of-government initiative, funded by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, produced by the Australian Government’s Department of the Environment and Energy, in close cooperation with the Australian Bureau of Statistics and Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation, and draws on data contributions from across the Australian Government. It provides a single point of access to anyone wishing to find out about the status of Australia’s data on each of the SDG Indicators and will assist stakeholders responsible for compiling reports on country, regional and global progress against the SDGs.

United Nations Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework

The United Nations Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework is an integral tool in the planning and implementation of the UN development activities at country level in support of the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The Cooperation Framework addresses the scale and urgency of the 2030 Agenda by means of guiding the entire programme cycle, driving planning, implementation, monitoring, reporting and evaluation of collective UN support for achieving the 2030 Agenda.  UNSDG 2019: Retrieved 8 August 2019


The Australian SDG Website

The Australian SDG website has been developed by the Global Compact Network Australia (GCNA), with the support of the Australian Government. The aim is to provide Australia with a live and ongoing platform to centralise and showcase action being taken across government, business, civil society and academia to advance the SDGs in the Australian context. Organisations are encouraged to share their SDG initiatives via the +add your project tab on the site as well as explore others’ projects showcased on the site. The Australian SDG website also provides access to a plethora of resources including tools, articles, reports and webcasts. GCNA 2019: Retrieved 8 August 2019


Reshaping governance for sustainability - Global Civil Society Report on the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs

The Global Civil Society Report builds on prior reports which examined policy approaches, the 2030 Agenda and impacts of privatisation, partnerships and corporate capture on implementation of the SDGs. The 2019 report delves into the global governance arrangements, structures and institutions that will be necessary to implement and transform SDG policies. It then offers analysis and recommendations on how to strengthen inclusive and participatory governance and to overcome structural and institutional obstacles and gaps in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and the 17 SDGs. This report is a call to action to world leaders ahead of the SDG Summit in September 2019. CSRG 2019: Retrieved 8 August 2019
