Indicators and Monitoring


The Maltese NSDS includes a set of 24 indicators which are referred to as ‘headline indicators’. The indicators are grouped according to the top-level goals outlined in the NSDS (these are the three pillars of SD plus ‘Cross-cutting strategic issues’). Additionally, 2 of the indicators are associated with the implementation of the strategy.

In order to adequately measure and evaluate progress the indicators outlined in the present SD Strategy have been computed and communicated with the assistance of the National Statistics Office. Indicators facilitate the decision making process and these are to be revised and updated in accordance with ongoing developments within the Sustainable Development framework. 

A list together with Data on Sustainable Indicators for Malta can be found at:
