They were adopted by the UN in 2015 and formed an international agenda for sustainable improvement of the quality of life for future generations..

At the same time, an important tool of such a partnership is to ensure the openness of national indicators and data to representatives of other countries. The Open SDG platform, created by the UK Office for National Statistics in collaboration with the Center for Open Data Enterprise and members of the Open SDG community, provides a convenient way to handle this data. Ukraine has recently joined the platform, which already unites dozens of countries.
