The formulation of Goal 1 is not very clear. We recommend specifying it by using indicators focussing on income poverty and vulnerability. The targets are generally well formulated and ambitious. Their operationalisation, however, is quite challenging. We have pointed out potential pitfalls of the indicators currently being considered by the IAEG-SDGs and have made some suggestions for improvement. The idea of an internationally coordinated national poverty measurement in particular should be taken into serious consideration.
