Sustainable Development Goals and children in Norway. A discussion paper on the SDGs indicators
The project’s goal is to review Norway’s ability to report statistics to the United Nations according to the Sustainable Development Goal Indicators for children and youth. This discussion paper reports on 18 indicators chosen by UNICEF Norway for 8 goals and 12 targets. Indicators of child poverty, health, education, and experienced violence are discussed, using examples from Norwegian statistics and research knowledge. Even though most children in Norway have excellent living conditions according to international overviews, a proportion of children in Norway experience considerable challenges on some of the indicators.
