EU falls short in Sustainable Development Goals

While the international community will set new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for the period up to 2030, a new preliminary SDG "stress test" report shows that EU states are themselves struggling to fulfil certain goals. It states that most industrialised nations are not ready for the post-2015 agenda. In other words,  it is not just a question of industrialised nations doing more to fight poverty in developing countries but they must also do it at home e.g. sustainable production and consumption patterns. Moreover, their economic systems should not exacerbate the gap between rich and poor. The Bertelsmann study compared the 34 OECD countries, using 34 indicators within the sphere of the 17 SDGs to reach its findings. The five countries that are most likely to reach the UN targets include four of the Nordic countries; Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland, with Switzerland completing the list.
