UNDP has developed a tool, the Rapid Integrated Assessment (RIA), to help countries assess their level of preparedness for the implementation of the SDGs. This assessment constitutes the first step in building a country roadmap or action plan, reviewing national planning documents to:
• Determine the relevance of the SDGs to the country context, both at national and subnational levels.
• Provide an indicative summary of the level of alignment between plans/strategies (at national and sub-national level as required) for the implementation of SDGs.
• Identify the interconnections between the SDG targets and sectoral areas of coordination.
• Identify sufficiency of data sources for the systematic monitoring progress of the SDGs.
