ABOUT THE BAROMETER
To reflect this paradigm shift the Hunger Barometer became in 2016 the Sustainable Solutions Barometer. Born from the collective work of several associations and organizations, this barometer is a publication addressed to the general public, the media and political decision-makers. It aims to raise awareness of the need to mobilize all stakeholders to effectively promote the MDGs and promote solutions that respond to these issues.
THE 2019 EDITION
The climate movements that are taking place around the world reflect a growing awareness of the issues related to ecological transition. If this transition is not fair, however, it will necessarily encounter legitimate opposition. Ecological transition, inclusion, combating inequalities, all these issues are ultimately interdependent and must be addressed simultaneously.
This 3rd edition of the Sustainable Solutions Barometer presents the exclusive results of the Global Survey’s global survey of more than 26,000 people on the appropriation of sustainable development goals (SDGs). The survey reveals that the 2030 agenda is relatively unknown to the public, as less than 50% of respondents are aware of the SDGs. However, 98% of them are familiar with the term “sustainability”. It is therefore the SDGs that the general public does not know about.
This edition of the Barometer presents analyses and transformative solutions that make it possible to consider contemporary paradigm shifts as opportunities to build a sustainable future for all. This chance to build a new model of society can only come about if all economic, social and political forces meet and mobilize.
Through interviews with sustainable development stakeholders, expert analyses on the conditions for a fair transition, and case studies on high-impact solutions, this Barometer attempts, in a modest way, to contribute to a fair transition to sustainable economies.

THE 2017 EDITION
The 2017 edition of the Sustainable Solutions Barometer chose innovation as the gateway to a more sustainable world. Beyond SDG 9, of which it is a part, innovation can be considered as a real catalysor that is inclusive and open to all areas of knowledge and expertise. To illustrate this process, the Sustainable Solutions Barometer presents original local initiatives, such as the creation of e-health applications (pp.4-5) or the establishment of social enterprises and partnerships in areas affected by inequality (pp.9-12).
