From the SDG Moment 2021: an ‘SDG Push’ can help countries exceed pre-pandemic development trajectories

Discover how integrated policy choices drive bold development gains

As presented at the SDG Moment 2021, UNDP’s flagship research found that eight out of ten people that are projected to be pushed into extreme poverty by 2030 as a result of COVID-19 will live in countries on the lower end of human development. 

But this is not a foregone conclusion. With a set of integrated policy choices and investment done domestically and by the international development community, countries can exceed pre-pandemic development trajectories and meet SDG targets that otherwise would have been missed. 

Explore what this ‘SDG Push’ scenario would look like in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and Europe and North America.
