OECD countries far from achieving 2030 Agenda goals

Paris, May 28 (Prensa Latina) The member countries of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) are far from achieving three quarters of the goals set out in the 2030 Agenda, according to a report published.

According to the report The short and winding road to 2030: average distance to the targets of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), prepared by this institution with its own data and that of the United Nations, despite the progress made, the member states are only meeting a quarter of the targets.

Almost all OECD countries ensure basic economic needs and implement the tools and policy frameworks of the 2030 Agenda, however, issues such as ensuring that no one is left behind and limiting pressures on the natural environment persist as debts, the document points out.

Some of the gaps are related to inequality, because although the figures point to an eradication of extreme poverty, deprivation is not being reduced more broadly, while women, youth and migrants face greater challenges than the rest of the population.

In addition, problems such as malnutrition and tobacco use continue to affect lower socioeconomic groups more, who also face greater disparities in education from the earliest years of life.

Although around one in eight OECD residents are considered to have low incomes and unhealthy diets, the report notes that few countries will be able to completely prevent social exclusion or reduce malnutrition by 2030.

Meanwhile, environmental pressures are increasing, as the use of material resources to support economic growth remains high and many valuable materials continue to be disposed of as waste.
