why is this project important?

If Australia is to reap the benefits of the SDGs, we need to track progress in implementing them.

Transforming Australia: SDG Progress Report, is a comprehensive independent report on Australia’s progress towards meeting the SDGs. It identifies where Australia is performing well and where it is not on track.

Prepared by the National Sustainable Development Council, in partnership with Monash Sustainable Development Institute and the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) Australia, New Zealand & Pacific, the report draws on many experts from across business, universities and the community sector. It provides a trustworthy, data-driven evidence base to stimulate public conversation about Australia’s future. It was supported by Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation, Australian Council of Superannuation Investors, HESTA, cbus, IFM and AustralianSuper.

The report examines progress on all 17 Goals, and specifically assesses 86 targets using 144 separate indicators. Where possible, the report seeks to identify whether Australia is on track to meet the targets by 2030. In some cases, it also compares Australia’s performance with that of other countries.
