SDG report: Wealthy countries are failing their poorer partners

Industrialised countries have not respected their commitment to allocate 0.7% of their gross national income (GNI) to development. This failure has cost poor countries €1.8 billion since 2002, according to a new report. EurActiv Germany reports. By adopting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2015, UN member states committed to working to end poverty, hunger and inequality by 2030. The SDGs were also designed to promote education and sustainable ways of life. International leaders will meet this week to adopt the post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals. Annick Girardin told EurActiv France that she believes this framework will respond to the root causes of the refugee crisis. But Europe, along with many of the richest industrialised countries, is a long way off course, according to a report by the Bertelsmann Stiftung and the Sustainable Development Soltutions Network (SDSN). And developing countries are having just as much trouble holding up their end of the bargain. They often fail to meet the fundamental objectives like ending hunger and poverty, or providing security. The countries at the bottom of the SDG index, like Central African Republic and Liberia, are almost exclusively in sub-Saharan Africa.
