Description

The region of Latin America and the Caribbean has been working for two years within the Forum framework to forge a regional approach, shared among the countries and aimed at setting its own course for implementing the 2030 Agenda. This annual report on regional progress and challenges explores the theme of the current cycle of the high-level political forum on sustainable development, “Transformation towards sustainable and resilient societies”, and focuses on the SDGs to be considered in 2018 (Goals 6, 7, 11, 12 and 15), in addition to Goal 17 which is reviewed annually. The report, inter alia, sets out regional progress made in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda, assesses trends, advances and gaps in each country, and identifies critical links for realizing the Agenda.
