Indicator 98. Annual report by Bank for International Settlements (BIS), International Accounting Standards Board (IASB), International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), International Monetary Fund (IMF), World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), and World Trade Organization (WTO) [other organizations to be added] on the relationship between international rules and the SDGs and the implementation of relevant SDG targets

Rationale and definition:

This indicator will track whether key international institutions deliver an official annual report assessing whether international rules are consistent with achieving the SDG. The reports should also outline options for improvement to make the rules consistent with achieving the goals. Institutions and reports covered by this indicator include:

  • BIS: Report on international financial regulatory standards (i.e. Basel III and successors)
  • IASB: Report on international accounting standards.
  • IFRS: Report on international financial monitoring standards
  • IMF: Report on the international financial system.
  • WIPO: Report on the international intellectual property regime.
  • WTO: Report on the international trade system.

Other organizations can be added to this indicator.

This indicator should also address issues relating to the internal governance of the above institutions.


Monitoring would be done by institution.

Comments and limitations:
