What is the purpose of the Sustainable development dashboard? What does it measure?

Sustainable development dashboard contains a selection of indicators that cover environmental, economic and social sustainable development. It mixes indicators on level and rate of change. Environmental sustainability indicators included are related to renewable energy consumption, carbon-dioxide emissions, forest areas and fresh water withdrawals. Economic sustainability indicators look at natural resource depletion, national savings, external debt stock, government spending on research and development and diversity of economy. Social sustainability is captured by changes in income and gender inequality, by changes in multidimensional poverty and by the old-age dependency ratio projected to 2030.
