The Sustainable Development Goals are a plan to completely reshape our world for the better in just 15 short years. Are we on track to realize these goals? The latest Sustainable Development Goals Report 2018 tells us that while more people are living better; there are mounting challenges for countries to overcome to realize the goals. Climate change, conflicts, inequality, poverty, rapid urbanization, rising trade tensions, elevated debt levels and a rise in hunger are among those hurdles. The pace of action to realize the goals is too slow. We need to do more, faster! The world will come together at the High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF) to asses our efforts. 47 countries stand ready to share their efforts, lessons learned and experiences to meet the globally agreed goals.
