The NRRP's contribution to the 2030 Agenda implementation

The 2030 Agenda and the NRRP

The 2030 Agenda adopted by the United Nations on 25 September 2015 is broken down into 17 goals (Sustainable Development Goals, SDGs), representing the economic and social spheres of action to promote sustainable development. These are in turn are divided into 169 Targets. Specific statistical indicators were identified for each goal to monitor progress.

Goals (Sustainable Development Goals)

An analytical framework was developed together with ISTAT. Within this framework, the NRRP's measures relate to the statistical indicators linked to the SDGs, and thus to the goals themselves (for more on this, see the box below 'What is the methodology used to construct the mapping'). To allocate funding a predominant connection is identified for each measure with a specific indicator and goal. This approach is necessary to limit the complexity but obviously does not enable us to fully grasp the multidimensional nature of the several measures included in the Plan. For example, an action to improve educational provision can be classified as part of SDG 4 on Education but is also likely to have secondary effects on gender issues (SDG 5), inequalities (SDG 10) and innovation (SDG 9).

The mapping results allow us to see the total resources allocated to the NRRP for each SDG (Infographic 1). Going into further detail, we can also see how the different missions and components contribute to each SDG (Infographic 2)

Every piece of data present is freely downloadable to make your own calculations.

Obviously, the analysis of the evolution of these indicators is not an exercise in assessing the impacts of individual lines of action or several lines of action combined. This is because their evolution will be affected by the implementation of other policies and exogenous factors. However, this exercise provides a framework for monitoring the evolution of indicators that we assume to be affected by the various measures included in the Plan. Statistical data are also available broken down, for example, by gender, age or geographical area, and for different years.

Which method is being used to construct the mapping

One or more relevant statistical indicators were identified for each sub-measure, favouring SDG indicators and those used by the Ministry of Ecological Transition in monitoring the National Strategy for Sustainable Development, the national coordination tool for implementing the 2030 Agenda.

For measures with climate or environmental tagging, in addition to the specific indicator linked to the measure, a relevant indicator was added to capture the expected contribution to climate or environmental goals.

This mapping made it possible to link primarily 198 sub-measures to 47 SDG indicators. A further 79 sub-measures were identified as having 13 potential indicators that are not currently included in the SDG system. However, it was not yet possible to represent eight measures in terms of indicators. The linkage with the indicators provided the connection to the goals and targets of the Agenda 2030, to map the interconnections between NRRP initiatives and the Agenda Goals. The amount allocated to each sub-measure was attributed to the respective target and goal to estimate the financial contribution. If the measure was linked to more than one target and goal, the amount was attributed to the link identified as predominant.

Datasets related to the NRRP’s contribution to the 2030 Agenda

Monitoring of NRRP measures through sustainable development indicators (SDGs) and Agenda 2030

The dataset shows the details of the prepared monitoring framework together with the values of the identified Wellbeing/Sustainability statistical indicators. The dataset displays the full statement of the links of the NRRP measures and sub-measures with the well-being and sustainability indicators and their place in the SDG framework of the 2030 Agenda, the result of the ISTAT-MEF RGS collaboration.
