Data disaggregation of SDG indicators by forced displacement (UNHCR)

As part of the Humanity Hub’s second seasonal programming theme, focusing on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), we will share insights by members of the Humanity Hub community and the Hague Peace & Justice ecosystem. This week, we are spotlighting UNHCR’s report on data disaggregation of SDG indicators by forced displacement.

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development makes an ambitious commitment to “leave no one behind” in its implementation. To ensure that this commitment is effectively met, several vulnerable population groups are identified for attention in the Agenda including migrants, refugees, and other forcibly displaced persons (FDPs).

The New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants1, the Comprehensive Refugee Response Framework (CRRF)2 and the Global Compact on Refugees (GCR)3 established a solid international commitment to supporting FDPs

and the countries where they reside. The work of the Inter-agency and Expert Group on SDG Indicators (IAEG- SDGs)4 to develop and implement the global indicator framework for monitoring the Goals and Targets of the 2030 Agenda, and to define and compile the standards and tools for disaggregating data, provided the basis for and systematic support required to meet the ambitious commitments made by member states.
