As part of the follow-up and review mechanisms for the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), member states are encouraged to conduct regular national reviews of progress made towards the achievement of these goals through an inclusive, voluntary and country-led process. This guide is intended to address the challenges of insufficient indicator coverage and data unavailability by providing civil society organisations with a range of alternative indicators, proxies and data sources which can capture both the impact of and progress against corruption in the SDG framework. These resources will allow CSOs to develop sound baskets of indicators for selected targets and to effectively advocate for their adoption at national level. To this end, the scope of the guide goes beyond monitoring progress towards the specific SDG target on corruption (16.5) and to consider how to monitor integrity risks related to other SDGs that are prone to corruption.
