The SDGs Report 2022

Since its inception in 2015, the 2030 Agenda has provided a blueprint for shared prosperity in a sustainable world—a world where all people can live productive, vibrant and peaceful lives on a healthy planet.

The Sustainable Development Goals Report 2022 provides evidence-based insights to answer this question.
