IIAS distinguishes three roles of public administration in the SDGs and contributes to the ongoing debate on indicators for sustainable development, by emphasizing the need (1) for governments to set own priorities and indicators, (2) for global agencies to measure whether nations are delivering on their own commitments, and (3) to trust professional communities to achieve global coordination.
