Independent monitoring and review of the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and its structural obstacles and challenges are key factors for the success of the SDGs. The Spotlight Report 2019 report dives more deeply into the (global) governance arrangements and institutions that will be necessary to implement alternative policies and to unleash the transformative potential of the SDGs. It offers analysis and recommendations on how to strengthen inclusive and participatory governance and to overcome obstacles and gaps in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs. In doing this, it poses a strong call to action to world leaders just in advance of the SDG Summit in September 2019.
The Gender Equity Index (GEI) measures the gap between women and men in education, the economy and political empowerment.

Exploring new policy pathways: How to overcome obstacles and contradictions in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda The world is off-track in terms of achieving sustainable development. Fundamental policy changes are necessary to unleash the transformative potential of the SDGs. In particular, there is a need for more coherent fiscal and regulatory policies and a whole-of-government approach towards sustainability. The Spotlight Report 2018 describes policies, resources and actions that are necessary to implement the 2030 Agenda. It highlights strategies and approaches which depart from business-as-usual and prioritize fulfilment of human rights and respect for planetary boundaries.

Independent monitoring and review of the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and its structural obstacles and challenges are key factors for the success of the SDGs. It is for this reason, the Reflection Group on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development together with other civil society organizations and networks has produced the first annual Spotlight Report assessing the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and the structural obstacles in its realization. The report puts a spotlight on the fulfillment of the 17 goals, with a particular focus on inequalities, responsibility of the rich and powerful, means of implementation and systemic issues. What are currently the main obstacles to achieving the SDGs? Are there transnational spill over effects that influence or even undermine the implementation of the goals? Are the current policy approaches, as they are reflected, inter alia, in the 2030 Agenda, an adequate response to the challenges and obstacles (or are they part of the problem)? What has to be done? Which specific policy changes (at international level) are necessary?

“Means and ends”: The ENDS (or goals) of humanity have already been agreed and include health and education for all, gender justice, peace, human rights, and the right to a development that ensures universal dignity within the planetary boundaries. The MEANS are available to achieve this, but inequalities stand on the way.

El Anuario de la Plataforma 2015 y más ofrece una reflexión sobre la agenda global de desarrollo en un momento de debilitamiento generalizado de las políticas públicas que, en el Norte y en el Sur, amenazan el bienestar global. En su edición de 2011, la Plataforma 2015 y más pretende ofrecer argumentos para la construcción de una agenda de desarrollo —en el marco de la agenda post 2015— basada en la idea de la interrelación y el fortalecimiento de las políticas públicas como ejes para la gobernanza global, entendida esta como la extensión de los derechos humanos y el bienestar al conjunto de los habitantes del planeta. Para ello el Anuario recoge una serie de artículos que se estructuran en tres apartados que desde diferentes perspectivas abordan la construcción de esta agenda.
