Summary

Peace, diplomacy, and international cooperation are fundamental conditions for the world to progress on the SDGs towards 2030 and beyond. The war in Ukraine and other military conflicts are humanitarian tragedies. They also impact prosperity and social outcomes through the rest of the world, including exacerbating poverty, food insecurity, and access to affordable energy. Global cooperation and commitment to the bedrock SDG principles of social inclusion, clean energy, responsible consumption, and universal access to public services are needed more than ever to respond to the major challenges of our times, including security crises, pandemics, and climate change however, for the second year in a row, the world is no longer making progress on the SDGs. The Sustainable Development Report describes countries’ progress towards achieving the SDGs and highlights areas where progress is insufficient. It also reports on global trends, policy efforts and data innovations during and following the Covid-19 pandemic.
