The SDG Integration Team located with UNDP’s Global Policy Network (GPN) aims to build a coherent and consolidated menu of services (the SDG Integrator “offer”) emphasizing direct short- to medium-term engagements to respond rapidly to requests from programme countries on national implementation and monitoring of the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development. UNDP's offer on SDG Integration unpacks and leverages the lessons from existing UNDP initiatives support countries’ efforts to implement the 2030 Agenda. These include integrated policy support building on the Mainstreaming, Acceleration and Policy Support (MAPS) engagements, the application of evidence-driven data and analytics for SDG implementation, and helping address data gaps in reporting to ensure no one is left behind.
With older age groups representing the fastest growing segments of the population worldwide, the importance of ageing is increasingly acknowledged in global development. Notably, UNDP has collaborated with HelpAge International to advocate for ageing in sustainable development and to support the establishment of a working group on ageing-related statistics and age-disaggregated data (the Titchfield Group) at the UN Statistical Commission, with the mandate to develop norms and standards for increasing the availability of ageing-related statistics. The Titchfield Group is expected to support the disaggregation workstream of the Inter-Agency and Expert Group on SDG indicators, and provide guidance on the categories and practice of age-disaggregation. The IAEG-SDGs has adopted a minimum disaggregation set, which includes age, and identified a number of policy priorities to ensure that SDG data disaggregation takes into account the needs of vulnerable population groups.
Under the guidance of the Policy Specialist on Data for Development, the Consultant will assess the barriers restricting age-disaggregated reporting of SDG Indicators prioritized for their relevance to older persons.
