SDG Country reporting (#nfur01 - national SDG reporting) is a capability that is part of the the broader 2030 Agenda Review Framework (capability) for the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

National reviews should be consistent with the voluntary common reporting guidelines (for use in theVoluntary National Review) proposed by the UN Secretary-General for the follow-up review under the High-level Political Forum.
