The first ASEAN MDG/SDG Indicators workshop was held in ASEAN Secretariat Jakarta on 9 – 10 June 2016. This workshop aimed at building capacity of the ASEAN Member States (AMS) and the ASEAN Secretariat staff both for the MDG and the SDG. The first focus was on how to report on the final achievements for the MDGs from 1990 to 2015 at the end of the period by producing tables, graphs and presentation on the achievement in a statistical report. The second focus of the workshop was on how to develop the national systems for reporting on the SDG and to develop a set of regional priority SDG indicators for future monitoring and documentation. The workshop agreed on plans for the production of an ASEAN MDG/SDG 2015 Statistical Report in 2017 to be ready for the ASEAN summit in August 2017.
