In September 2015, the UN General Assembly ratified the 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development, a new transformative, integrated and universal agenda that aims to end poverty, promote prosperity and peoples well-being while protecting the environment. In total, 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 169 Targets have been adopted by the world leaders and will guide new norms through which countries will manage, monitor progress and communicate on the 3 interconnected components of sustainable development: economic growth, social inclusion and environmental sustainability. A robust monitoring mechanism for the implementation of the SDGs requires asolid framework of indicators to track progress, inform policy and ensure accountability of all stakeholders. A global framework of230 indicators for the monitoring of the Goals and Targets has been proposed by the UN Statistical Commission as a voluntary and country-led instrument to be officially adopted by the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). Satellite Earth Observations and Geospatial Information are essential elements that can inform the monitoring and reporting of many SDG Targets and Indicators, and consequently underpin the SDG framework. The EO for SDGs project aims at supporting ESA and its Member States, CEOS and the GEO community to leverage the integration of Earth Observations in the SDG framework. The Contractor is requested to perform an in-depth review ofthe Global Indicator Framework and asses the current and potential use of EO in the full realization of the 2030 agenda on sustainable development; to review the monitoring guidelines prepared by the UN system for a number of key indicators where EO is essential;to showcase the value of EO for a number of SDG Indicators by performing a full country demonstration in partnership with the National Statistical Office and relevant governmental authorities; and to analyse how EO data, tools and information in support to the SDGscan be made available in an easy, open and cost effective manner.
