Digital Science Examines the Current State of the Sustainable Development Goals

Briony Fane writes the following in “In the Spotlight: Have the SDGs Failed to Reduce Fragmentation in Global Sustainability?” for Digital Science’s TL;DR archive:

2023 marks the halfway point between 2015 (the entry point of the [United Nations] Sustainable Development Goals—SDGs), and 2030 (the end point of the SDGs). As it stands currently, the world is off track to achieving the SDGs and action is necessary to accelerate their implementation. …

To effectively realise what is known as the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development, there needs to be evidence of ‘a shared sense of common purpose’. However, progress on achieving the 2030 Agenda has been severely disrupted due to multiple world crises. Thus a joint effort utilising multi-stakeholder partnerships to help to achieve the SDGs is paramount at this halfway point. …

A complex network of interconnections exist across the SDGs and show how actions directed towards one SDG can influence others. For example, food production (SDGs 1 and 2) is increasingly threatened by air pollution (SDG13), which affects soil quality (SDG15) and crop yields (SDG2). The 2023 Global Sustainability report highlights that an interconnected and systemic approach will be key and shows new evidence that understanding the interconnections between individual goals … will be essential.
