ASviS Report 2017

Italy and the Sustainable Development Goals

Will Italy succeed in drastically reducing poverty, unemployment and inequalities, protecting the environment and combating climate change, improving the population’s quality of life and building resilient infrastructure? How is the country doing with respect to the UN’s 2030 Agenda and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), agreed to by countries all over the world exactly two years ago? How can Italy design effective policies to bridge the existing gaps with other countries and achieve the Targets set for 2020 and 2030 in order to become economically, socially and environmentally sustainable? Did the Government adopt suitable measures, in the past year, to respond to the challenges of our time?

These are some of the issues ASviS’s 2017 Report addresses. The Report represents a unique instrument to understand the 2030 Agenda’s state of implementation in Italy, also thanks to its use of innovative synthetic indicators and analytical tools that not only depict Italy’s current position with respect to the SDGs, but also advance scenarios for the evolution of the country to 2030 on the basis of the adoption of different policies. Thanks to the work of over 300 experts from ASviS’s 175 member organizations, the Report also assesses the policies the Government put in place over the past year and advances policy proposals for the coming months (those within the terms of the current legislature) and the following, to bring Italy on a pathway to sustainable development.
