Only 17% of the goals to improve life in the world will be achieved in 2030, warns the UN

The United Nations Organization (UN) warned Friday that only 17 percent of its 169 goals to improve the lives of the planet’s more than 7 billion people are on track to be achieved by 2030.

In the presentation of the annual report, the Secretary General of the UN, Antonio Guterresstated that this “shows that the world is failing.”

In 2015, world leaders adopted 17 wide-ranging development goals, ranging from ending world poverty to achieving gender equality, and set 169 specific targets to be achieved by the end of the decade.

According to the report, almost half of the goals show minimal or moderate progress, and more than a third are stagnant or in regression, with just 17% on track to be achieved.

“The bottom line is simple,” Guterres said. “Our inability to ensure peace, address climate change and boost international finance is undermining development.”
