 The current state of the Sustainable Development Goals 

(a) According to the UN Global Sustainable Development Report 2023, the world is far off track to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, and at a global level, the “Leave no one behind” principle is at significant risk.

(b) The Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN)’s report 2023 states that all of the SDGs are seriously off track at the midpoint of the 2030 Agenda, but that is all the more reason to double down on the SDGs.

(c) The UN Secretary-General’s report (special edition, July 2023) on the “Progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals” demonstrates that the SDGs are in deep trouble - a preliminary assessment of the roughly 140 SDG targets with data show only about 12% are on track; close to half, though showing progress, are moderately or severely off track and some 30% have either seen no movement or regressed below the 2015 baseline.

 

 The cause of Agenda 2030 

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 Agenda are a universal call-to- action spearheaded by the United Nations to end poverty, reduce inequality, protect the planet, tackle climate change and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. There are 17 SDGs and 169 targets set out in the 2030 Agenda which was unanimously adopted by the 193 Member States of the UN on 25 September 2015.​

The 2030 Agenda is grounded in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and international human rights treaties (Paragraph 10 of the Agenda). Over 90% of the SDG targets reflect international and regional human rights treaty provisions (Danish Institute for Human Rights, 2017). More importantly, UN Member States have binding human rights obligations under international law and certain national laws. In this context, the 2030 Agenda is a game changing initiative for all UN Member States to realize sustainable development through a human rights-based approach.

 The problem 

How to leverage the human rights foundation of Agenda 2030 towards delivering the SDGs?

 

Even though the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is grounded in human rights as mentioned above, a majority of national action plans for implementing the SDGs have not duly incorporated an enabling human rights guide or a human rights-based approach. As LEEG-Net understands, one main reason for this lack of regard for international law on human rights is the lack of interdisciplinarity between development and human rights at the operational level.

 

​​ Our solution 

LEEG-Net’s campaigns are global calls-to-action on the urgency of following a human rights-based approach to sustainability. LEEG-Net is leveraging the 2030 Agenda as a platform to help achieve this goal. To this end, we have developed a human rights-based blueprint to help advance the SDGs and several projects (mentioned above) that are beginning to make a positive impact on SDG-related policymaking and civil society actions at national and global levels.
