Sustainable Development Report 2023’s Summary:

The Sustainable Development Report 2023 marks the eighth edition of the annual assessment of progress for all UN member states towards the Sustainable Development Goals. At the halfway point of the 2030 Agenda, this year’s edition discusses urgent areas for action to accelerate progress in the seven remaining years to 2030, including the critical need for UN member states to adopt an SDG Stimulus.

This year’s edition focuses specifically on the need to scale up development finance and to reform the global financial architecture to support the SDGs. The views expressed in this report do not reflect the views of any organization, agency or program of the United Nations.

The report was prepared by the United Nations – Sustainable Development Solutions Network (UN-SDSN)’s newly created SDG Transformation Center and coordinated by Guillaume Lafortune in cooperation with Jeffrey D. Sachs. It released in June 2023.

This report has been prepared with the extensive advice and consultation of the SDSN Leadership Council members.

The United Nations – Sustainable Development Solutions Network (UN-SDSN) was created in 2012, soon after the Rio+20 Summit, to mobilize the world’s universities, think tanks, and national laboratories on behalf of the SDGs. SDSN’s mission was fourfold: (i) scholarly research, (ii) educational innovation and partnerships, (iii) convening power, and (iv) outreach to the public.

The SDSN is now a global network of more than 1,900 member organizations, mainly universities, organized in 53 national and regional chapters. Via science-based pathways and analytics, the SDSN supports discussions on SDG implementation at the global, regional, and national levels.
