Last Friday (25), members from different sectors of the IBGE met at the Philippe Pinel Institute, in Rio de Janeiro, for the installation of the ODS Committee and the ODS Working Group, responsible for supervising and producing the indicators of the Goals of Sustainable Development (SDGs) defined by the 2030 Agenda of the United Nations (UN). The Committee is IBGE's internal body in charge of the production governance of the SDG indicators, with a view to meeting the targets. The Working Groups are made of partnerships between the IBGE and other institutions of the federal administration.
“The UN’s 2030 Agenda is challenging due to the quantity of goals involved. The IBGE is the national coordinator of the SDG indicators, regularly taking part in international thematic groups. The eyes are wide open again to the 2030 Agenda in the federal government”, highlighted Denise Kronemberger, IBGE’s Institutional Relations Manager.
The major data sources to produce SDG indicators are surveys, administrative records and monitoring. In addition to other actions, the IBGE aims at: prioritizing the indicators for the targets without measurement up to the moment; producing national supplementary indicators; incorporating new surveys; and encouraging academic production on SDG indicators in the National School of Statistical Sciences (ENCE).
The UN’s 2030 Agenda was established in the entity’s General Assembly in 2015, and involves a global plan made of 17 Sustainable Development Goals. The commitment made by the countries includes adopting bold measures that can change society. Health and well-being, quality education, gender equality, clean water and sanitation, affordable and clean energy, reduced inequalities, poverty eradication and actions against climate change are some of the goals.
In the meeting hosted by the IBGE, some ongoing experiences were presented in the production of SDG indicators. Octavio Oliveira, from the Department of Agricultural Statistics; Marco Antônio Andreazzi, from the Department of Population and Social Indicators; Rodrigo Pereira, from the Environment Department; and Rosane Oliveira, from the Department of Population and Social Indicators, shared with the guests the work already carried out on the SDGs with which they are involved.
Adriana Beringuy, coordinator of Household Sample Surveys at IBGE, showed recent and potential contributions to new SDG indicators, such as: the sensation of security module in the Continuous National Household Sample Survey (PNADC) in 2021, which helped meet the SDG 16 indicator (Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions); improvement in the construction of indicators for persons with disabilities of SDG 8 (Decent Work and Economic Growth), based on the module of persons with disabilities in the PNADC in 2022; new multidimensional indicators in the Consumer Expenditure Survey (POF); the food security module in the fourth quarter of 2023 at PNADC, which will make it possible to update information on SDG 2 (Zero Hunger); and the new National Survey of Health and Demography (PNDS), with the potential to contribute to SDG 3 (Health and Well-Being).
“This event is very important due its potential to contribute to quality of life improvement in society. The integration between Geography and Statistics, as we have here in the IBGE, is an opportunity to move on further with the 2030 Agenda”, said Claudio Stenner, IBGE Director of Geosciences. He also highlighted the need for a detailed mapping of the municipalities' infrastructure: “The 2030 Agenda is fundamentally implemented at the local level. The technological tools used in the 2022 Population Census can help in this process”.
The meeting also featured the presentation of the da Plataforma ODS Brasil (Brazil SDG Platform), which concentrates the indicators of the Sustainable Development Goals. “The focus of the platform is to disseminate the indicators that are produced by the IBGE and other institutions in Brazil. For this purpose, it uses various systems of the Institute, such as metadata, SIDRA and the maps of the Interactive Geographical Platform (PGI). There are also news, videos and dissemination of events”, explained Vinícius Pereira, from the IBGE Department of Methodology and Database.
