UN sustainability goals are threatened to fail
In 2015, the international community pledged to jointly contribute to better economic, ecological and social development by 2030. In September, the heads of state and government will meet again for the first time to review the situation. The current SDG Report shows that while the global community talks a lot about sustainability goals, it does not invest enough in implementing them.
The SDG Report is the only global comparative study of developed and developing countries on the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The index was developed by the Bertelsmann Stiftung in collaboration with the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) and UN Special Adviser Jeffrey Sachs. The study compared data from 193 countries. The SDG index allows all countries to be compared based on country profiles and a traffic light system. The UN Sustainable Development Goals are a collection of 17 global goals and 169 associated targets with a social, economic and environmental aspect. The indicators were designed and selected in collaboration with the SDSN, a consortium of research institutes to support the implementation of the UN development goals.
