The Sustainable Development Report 2023







Since 2015, the Sustainable Development Report (SDR), which includes the SDG Index and Dashboards, provides the most up-to-date data to track and rank the performance of all UN Member States on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). At the mid-point of Agenda 2030, this year’s edition takes stock of progress made and discusses priorities to restore and accelerate SDG progress. More specifically, this year’s report discusses priorities to scale up development finance and offers six priorities for reform of the Global Financial Architecture for the SDGs issued by members of the SDSN Leadership Council, a preeminent group of global experts and leaders in sustainable development across academia, business, civil society, and the public sector. For the third year in a row, global progress on the SDGs has stalled. The report demonstrates that at the midpoint in the 2030 Agenda none of the 17 SDGs are on track to be achieved. There is a risk that the gap in SDG outcomes between high-income countries (HICs) and low-income countries (LICs) will be larger in 2030 than when the goals were universally agreed upon in 2015. Despite the grim news, the report demonstrates that now is the time for countries to double down on SDG progress by endorsing deep reform of the global financial architecture and implementing the SDG Stimulus to close the significant financing gap facing developing and emerging countries. The SDGs remain the future we want.
