Sustainable Development in the UNECE Region: Facing a Headwind in 2024


This publication provides the 2024 progress assessment on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the region of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE), based on the data available in the United Nations Global SDG Indicators Database.

The results are presented at the regional level, identifying the SDG targets that the UNECE region is on track to achieve by 2030 as well as targets where progress needs to accelerate or where the current trend needs to be reversed.

The publication contains stories provided by agencies and United Nations country teams participating in the Regional Coordination Group on Data and Statistics for Europe and Central Asia, and by all UNECE programmes. These stories show concrete ways in which progress towards SDGs is made in the region.

The UN Joint SDG Fund programme's stories from Belarus and North Macedonia are also highlighted in the report:
