Chapters of the Europe Sustainable Development Report 2020
Part 1: Performance of European countries against the SDGs
All ten countries closest to achieving the SDGs are in Europe – a remarkable performance. Yet, no country is on track to achieving all of the SDGs. European countries also generate large negative spillover effects that undermine other countries’ efforts to achieve the Goals.
Part 2: Suppressing the COVID-19 pandemic and achieving SDG3 (Good Health and Well‑Being)
The number one priority for European countries and the EU should remain the suppression of the pandemic, within and outside Europe. This section provides evidence on policies that have worked – and not worked – in suppressing the virus.
Part 3: Six SDG Transformations for the EU
The EU needs to further strengthen the narrative for how the SDGs can and will be achieved inside and outside the Union. Combined with public education and outreach, this will help sustain and expand popular support for the SDGs, the European Green Deal and other major ambitions.
