Report presented by the European Union (EU) on 19 July 2023, comprising its first ever Voluntary Review concerning the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Further information:

Voluntary reviews on the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are the central accountability instrument agreed by all countries in the 2030 Agenda. They aim at facilitating the sharing of success-stories, best practises, and discussions on outstanding challenges, as well as lessons learnt - all with a view of accelerating the implementation of the 2030 Agenda.

The review underlines the EU's unequivocal commitment to the 2030 Agenda and its SDGs. It provides an overview of how EU internal and external actions are contributing to delivering on the 17 SSDGs both within the EU and in partner countries around the world. It takes stock of the progress achieved, reflects on lessons learnt, and considers how to advance the 2030 Agenda further at EU level.

The voluntary reviews form the basis for the regular reviews by the High-level Political Forum (HLPF) under the auspices of United Nations Economic and Social Council. All the 27 EU Member States have submitted national voluntary reviews to the United Nations.
