In September 2015, the Government of Armenia (GoA), along with governments of all other member states of the United Nations, signed on to Agenda 2030 and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This marked an important milestone for Armenia reform agenda towards leaving no one behind.
The complexity and interconnectedness of SDGs require novel approaches, methodologies, strong data systems, and institutions that would have the capacity to provide ‘out of the box’ solutions to emerging challenges. In 2017, the world’s first National SDG Innovation Lab was established in Yerevan, through which many of these solutions will be developed and delivered.

National SDG Barometer system applies human-centered design approach. Once it place, it will significantly improve data ecosystem in Armenia, integrating into it in the later stage also big data and other advanced solutions.
At present, Armenia National SDG Innovation Lab requires support in finalizing the SDG Barometer prototyping process followed by establishing its web-based system. Upon finalization and testing of electronic prototype on a selected SDG (SDG-7), the functionality of the Barometer will be further enriched and will include the remaining 16 SDGs considering their particular content and measurement challenges
