THE 2020 EDITION OF THE BAROMETER
2020-2030: a decade of action starting with a pandemic
Five years after introducing the SDGs, 2020 marks a real turning point in their implementation. There are only 10 years left to make the 2030 Agenda come true. Most importantly, 2020 is also the year of the coronavirus crisis, which is a burning reminder of our socio-economic systems’ vulnerability. Setting up more resilient models appears to be more urgent than ever.
To what extent does the sanitary crisis represent a turning point allowing us to rethink our societies in a more sustainable way? Is the pandemic a threat to sustainable development? How can the SDGs provide us with a new framework to build tomorrow’s society? These are the questions the Barometer attempts to answer.
Key figures of the Barometer: an outlook 5 years after the SDGs’ adoption
This 2020 edition of the Sustainable Solutions Barometer will give you the exclusive opportunity to learn more about key topics related to the SDGs. Key figures from two surveys carried out by Focus 2030 and ACTED and data by UNSDSN on issues such as the connection between the coronavirus pandemic and sustainable development, youth’s mobilisation for climate, and progress in achieving the SDGs in the world.
