Results of continuous monitoring are published in the monitoring section of the Finnish sustainable development website (in Finnish) on the basis of ten pre-defined sets of indicators.
Each of the ten sets includes 4-5 indicators updated annually.
The complete list of indicators (set up in 2017) used for monitoring SDGs in Finland (in Finnish).
The indicator sets are defined by the SD council and the Prime Minister's Office in consultation with researchers, experts and civil society organisations.
The global indicators are provided by Statistics Finland. It published its indicator database in the spring of 2019. Only 54 % per cent of the global indicators were available in Finland.
Voluntary National Report:
Finland is at an advanced stage of planning and implementing Agenda 2030, with policy documents and operational plans adopted in early 2017 and thoroughly integrated into existing institutional structures, with inter-ministerial coordination to ensure policy coherence. These place SD in a broader societal context while political leadership at the highest level ensures policy coherence.
Strengths identified as education and social stability, while climate change and better use of natural resources are perceived as challenges. Finland is ranked highly in comparative indices, but progress has been slow in recent years. The incumbent government thus wants to focus its implementation plan on consistent progression.
