Relationship between the UN Sustainable Development Goals and other measurement and management systems with Annex A

This annex describes how the diagnostic model given in Annex A can translate different assessment systems contents or subject matters. Example: UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), or UN human rights into indicators of public policy networks . 

The diagram of the 2030 Agenda of the United Nations shown in Figure D.1 illustrates this compatibility. The 17 SDGs can overlap and be assessed at a local government level with the 39 public policy network indicators given in Annex A. The 39 indicators of Annex A should not be changed. Each indicator represents a different public policy that any local government could face, as a legally defined competence of the local government or as an “incumbency”, something that the citizens could demand which it is not a legally defined competence of the local government.

The 39 indicators can be verified with a questionnaire that identifies sub-indicators based on examples and evidence of results. These sub- indicators can vary in scope, evidence, number or quality, depending on the type of municipality or city. They can show, for example, the proportion of revenues of last year against the expenses of the local government.
