In accordance with the provisions of Supreme Decree No. 49 of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Chile of May 2016 and Supreme Decree No. 67 of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, published in November 2019, which modify the public institutional
framework for the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in Chile, the National Statistics Institute (INE) forms part of the National Council for the Implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in its
role as Technical Advisor to the Council and the Technical Secretariat.
In 2016, the Sectoral Technical Group on Indicators (Grupo Técnico Sectorial de Indicadores, or GTI) was created for the purpose of compiling statistical information from the data provided by the institutions that make up
the National Network for the 2030 Agenda. With this data, progress of the indicators can be monitored by the GTI, of which INE is a member.
In its role as Technical Advisor, INE reports on the international and United Nations position, the international methodology established for the construction of the indicators, the monitoring of the Agenda, and the comparison
of Chile’s experiences with those of other countries. INE also provides guidance on the preparation of the Voluntary National Review.
With the prior approval of the Council of Ministers, INE formally assumed the coordination of the GTI in January 2022. Two workstreams were agreed upon within the framework of the GTI. The first workstream is the annual reporting
and updating of SDG indicators, with a special emphasis on the delivery of data to the Technical Secretariat for the preparation of follow-up reports such as the Voluntary National Review. The second workstream will seek to advance in the
definition of a survey program for pending official indicators and any additional indicators (a task to be carried out jointly with the institutions of the National Network for the 2030 Agenda) and to create the necessary capacities for this
The United Nations Statistical Commission (UNSC) created the Inter-Agency Expert Group on Sustainable Development Goal Indicators (IAEG-SDG) to monitor and review indicators of the 2030 Agenda. Among the functions of the IAEG-SDG is to develop a framework of indicators for global monitoring and review of goals and targets while taking into account the efforts of countries and organizations, including regional and international agencies, academia, and civil society.

In addition, the Commission created the High Level Group on Partnership, Coordination, and Capacity-Building in Statistics for the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (HLG-PCCB), which it mandated to provide strategic leadership for the SDG implementation process with regard to statistical monitoring and reporting within the framework of the Fundamental Principles of Official Statistics and to promote national ownership of and fostering capacity building and coordination for the follow-up and review system, ensuring consistency between global monitoring and reporting, among other functions.

To ensure national ownership, both groups have determined that National Statistical Offices should play a leading role in the development, implementation, and monitoring of the SDG indicator framework at the global, regional, and national levels.
