A universal, transformative and rights-based post-2015 development agenda requires a universal commitment to measure progress, in every country, regardless of development status. It also requires a concerted effort to ensure data is being collected and is available to support monitoring, and that it is open and transparent, to ensure real accountability. The OWG has set out an ambitious agenda, with 17 goals and 169 targets. The challenge now will be to ensure that all the targets are measurable, and that the right indicators are put in place to measure progress.
