A global coalition of civil society organizations and trade unions have presented the report 'Spotlight on Sustainable Development 2017' on 10 July 2017. It was published on the opening day of the High Level Political Forum at the United Nations in New York. The report provides the most comprehensive independent assessment of the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Nueva York (Notimex). Erradicar la pobreza extrema para el año 2030, una aspiración central de los Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible (ODS) de Naciones Unidas, es posible, pero sería necesario cambiar los actuales enfoques de política pública impulsados en el mundo, de acuerdo con un estudio.

Elaborado por una coalición de organismos civiles y sindicatos, el documento señaló que la erradicación es posible con los recursos económicos actuales en el mundo, pero las políticas públicas que podrían lograr ese propósito han sido severamente debilitadas en las últimas décadas.

The Reflection Group on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (www.reflectiongroup. org), created in 2011 to offer independent analysis and suggestions to the international de­bate, decided in 2015 to regularly watch and assess the implementation of the new 2030 Agenda and the structural obstacles in its realization, and to present its findings in an annual “Spotlight Report”. The report is supported by a broad range of CSOs and trade unions, and based on the experiences and reports by national and regional groups and coalitions from all parts of the world.
