Press briefing on the Sustainable Development Goals Report 2017

Efforts must intensify if the international community is to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030, according to the Sustainable Development Goals Report 2017. This year’s Report states that the pace of progress has been insufficient and advancements have been uneven to fully meet the implementation of the SDGs.
