On 12 June 2013, the Conference of European Statisticians held under the auspices of UNECE in Geneva, endorsed a set of recommendation for a framework to measure sustainable development and associated sets of indicators. This is a “key step toward harmonizing various approaches” and is expected to contribute to UN processes for setting Sustainable Development Goals and defining a post-2015 development agenda. The Report was developed by a Task Force set up by UNECE, Eurostat, and OECD, and builds on the definition of sustainable development in the 1987 Brundtland Report.
