    Short Group Status
    The RDA for the SDGg IG has been an IG since RDA P16. Since then, there have been ongoing engagement with other RDA IGs  and WGs, as well as RDA Council to help align the activities of the RDA for SDGs IG group with RDAs proposed strategy for 2020-2023. Most recently, the RDA for SDGs IG conducted a tentative mapping of RDA WGs, Outputs, Recommendations, and Adoption case-studies to the 17 SDG goals, presented at RDA P18. Since P18, there has been ongoing development of the tool OntoSDG, and now our IG would like to gain more direct feedback from organizational and community members to evaluate this tool and mapping of alignment of RDA for the SDGs. Further, we will collaboratively develop strategic nexts-steps to build upon and expand this current work to best frame the value of the RDA for the SDGs. Previous sessions have been well-attended, demonstrating the community interest and cross-sector data needs for the SDGs.
