This article presents the Policy Coherence for Development Index (ICPD) which, overall, constitutes a framework for understanding and interpreting challenges posed by the 2030 Agenda and the public policy that tacking it will require. It also stands as an ambitious monitoring system evaluating country compliance with a policy coherence for development perspective.

The article first explains how the 2030 Agenda requires a new conceptual device and tool that consolidates a new narrative of development-related challenges based on universality, comprehensiveness and multidimensionality, incorporating the global interdependencies and interconnections that characterize today’s world. This allows both progress and regression on the internationally agreed sustainable development goals and targets to be rigorously measured.
