(Activist Post) UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has announced that the world is falling short on the Agenda 2030 and called for nations to recommit to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.
On Tuesday UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres revealed the latest Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Progress Report shows a significant lack of progress. Guterres noted that the world is halfway to the 2030 deadline but only 12 percent of the SDGs are on track to be completed.
The UN SDGs are a collection of 17 interlinked goals designed to be a “blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all.” The SDGs were set in 2015 by the United Nations General Assembly with the intention of achieving them by the year 2030. The SDGs were part of a larger resolution known as the 2030 Agenda, or Agenda 2030, aimed ostensibly at fighting climate change.
Guterres said progress on 50 percent of the goals is “weak and insufficient,” while 30 percent of the SDGs have “stalled or gone into reverse.” He predicted that if the current trend holds only 30 percent of nations will accomplish SDG1, focused on poverty, by 2030.
