An ode to what should be done with the SDGs that have begun

How to render the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) realistic and feasible.

"The world is off-track in terms of achieving sustainable development and fundamental policy changes are necessary to unleash the transformative potential of the SDGs". This is the main message of the new report Spotlight on Sustainable Development 2018: Exploring New Policy Pathways by the Civil Society Reflection Group on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Supported by Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung, the report is the most extensive independent evaluation of the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Read it here: www.2030spotlight.org.
