Guide to SDG Interactions: From Science to Implementation
Interactions between the SDGs
This guide examines the interactions between SDG goals and targets, determining to what extent they reinforce or conflict with each other through proposing a seven-point scale to quantify these synergies and conflicts. The scale ranges from +3, which applies when one goal or target is very reinforcing of others, to -3, which applies when goals and targets conflict with each other. A score of 0 indicates neutral interaction. The report includes detailed analysis of Zero Hunger (SDG 2), Good Health and Well-being (SDG 3), Affordable and Clean Energy (SDG 7), and Life Below Water (SDG 17) and their interactions with other goals.
