SDGs and the environment in the EU: a systems view to improve coherence

This report demonstrates how the SDG Synergies approach could be used to better understand how progress towards different goals and targets of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in the European Union could affect progress in other parts of the Agenda. It presents an illustrative analysis of how Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) targets of particular relevance to environmental policy-makers could influence progress on a range of other goal areas – although carried out by a small group of experts, rather than the range of stakeholders normally involved in an SDG Synergies process.
