In 2020, Paraguay’s National Connectivity Report was prepared as part of the United Nations Development Account project “Sustainable transport connectivity and implementation of transport-related SDGs in selected landlocked and transit/bridging countries”. The report contains 161 indicators that assess rail, road, and inland waterway transport in Paraguay, concerning areas such as the regulatory and administrative framework for border crossings, quality of transport infrastructure, quality of regulations on transport of dangerous goods and perishable foodstuffs, and efforts to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and other atmospheric pollutants, and noise emissions.
This document updates the indicators and extends their reach by including a new section on social development. In the current context, given the challenges the world is facing, it is crucial to consider the International Labour Organization (ILO) Indigenous and Tribal Peoples Convention, 1989 (No. 169) as well as gender equality, climate change, and improved national statistical systems when developing the Vienna Programme of Action for Landlocked Developing Countries for the Decade 2014–2024.
National Connectivity Reports are an excellent tool for landlocked developing countries to voluntarily evaluate and report progress implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Vienna Programme of Action.
