Nowhere in the Middle: APRCEM NGO Constituency on the outcomes of the SDG Summit

At the midpoint of the Agenda 2030, only 15% of the targets are on track. In the Asia-Pacific, this translates to compounded impacts of the pandemic on health and economic systems, debt burden on the poorest, worsening conflict, deterioration of social protection systems, violation of basic human rights, and incapacity to address the climate crisis. Recognizing that the world is nowhere near in achieving its sustainable development targets, the SDG Summit is convened by the United Nations (UN) to accelerate action towards the goals with solutions outlined in Our Common Agenda.
