Report presented on 10 May 2019 by the European Commission describing how the European Union and its Member States are supporting the implementation of the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Further information:

This report focuses on the period since the adoption of the 2030 Agenda by the United Nations General Assembly in September 2015 and is a contribution to EU reporting at the 2019 High Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (which was held in July 2019). The report shows progress made by the EU and Member States thus far and how they intended to continue their efforts. It demonstrates that they collectively contributed to implementation of all SDGs in all developing regions of the world. In support of this implementation, the European Union adopted the European Consensus on Development in 2017, which provides a common policy framework for development cooperation.

The European Union and its Member States worked together to produce the report, in consultation with other partners. The Staff Working Document accompanying the report complements it by providing detailed information on progress made under each SDG, including specific examples of action from the EU and its Member States.
