Rapport sur les objectifs de développement durable 2017

Mit der Annahme der Agenda 2030 für nachhaltige Entwicklung gelobten die Staatenlenker der Welt, die Menschheit aus der Armut zu befreien, für die künftigen Generationen eine gesunde Erde zu erhalten und friedliche, inklusive Gesellschaften als Grundlage eines menschenwürdigen Lebens für alle aufzubauen.

Der Umsetzungsprozess hat begonnen, doch die Zeit drängt. Wie dieser Bericht zeigt, sind die Fortschritte in vielen Bereichen bei weitem zu schleppend, um die Zielvorgaben bis 2030 zu erreichen.

Um die 767 Millionen Menschen, die noch immer von weniger als 1,90 US-Dollar pro Tag leben, aus der Armut zu befreien und die Ernährung der 793 Millionen Menschen zu sichern, für die Hunger zum Alltag gehört, bedarf es gezielter Maßnahmen. Wir müssen die Müttersterblichkeit doppelt so rasch senken wie bisher. Wir müssen uns entschlossener den nachhaltigen Energien zuwenden und stärker in eine nachhaltige Infrastruktur investieren. Und wir müssen eine hochwertige Bildung für alle erreichen: Könnten bis 2030 alle Kinder in Ländern mit niedrigem Einkommen die obere Sekundarstufe abschließen, so stiege das Pro-Kopf-Einkommen bis 2050 um 75 Prozent und im Kampf gegen die Armut könnten wir ein volles Jahrzehnt gewinnen.
