Through its participation in the Inter-Agency and Expert Group on the Sustainable Development Goals Indicator Framework (IAEG-SDGs), EGRISS has contributed to the identification of priority SDG indicators that should be disaggregated by displacement status. These indictors – see list of 12 in the below table – were identified through a consultative process of EGRISS members based on analysis of the SDG framework and consultation with policy experts working in refugee and IDP settings.
These indicators were identified in 2018 and submitted through the IAEG-SDGs to the UN Statistical Commission in 2019 as part of its workstream on Data Disaggregation. The working group mapped out existing Dimensions and Categories for data disaggregation of global SDG indicators and identified a list of Policy Priority Inputs to inform future disaggregation plans.
In addition, in 2021, the group developed a Compilation of Tools and Resources for Data Disaggregation that also included contributions from EGRISS and EGRISS members.
Currently EGRISS’ Technical Subgroup 2 ‘Methodological Research and Guidance Development’ is working on a methodological paper concerning the application of the above SDG indicators in forced displacement settings.
