About the SDGs
Our planet is struggling with tremendous economic, social and environmental issues. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) define global priorities and goals to be achieved by 2030 in order to solve or mitigate these problems.
According to Ipsos’s annual comparative research from 2018, one third of the Czech public is aware of SDGs. For the Czech Republic, the most important topics are Good Health and Well-being (SDG 3) and Clean Water and Sanitation (SDG 6). Among the key objectives, the Czech population ranks Decent Work and Economic Growth (SDG 8), Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions (SDG 16) or Affordable Clean Energy (SDG 7).
It has been over two years since all member states of the United Nations including Czechia adopted the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In July 2017, selected countries including Czechia presented their progress in fulfilling the SDGs at the High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development at the UN headquarters in New York. As part of the forum, the SDG Index global report was published. The report analyses the progress of individual countries; out of 157 countries, Czechia scored 5th right after the Scandinavian countries.
