A Foreign Policy Perspective on the SDGs

Thursday, July 19, 2018
United Nation Theme: 

This paper maps out the relevance of the SDGs to foreign policy. Taking the six SDGs under review at the High-level Political Forum (HLPF) in 2018 as entry points, we analyse how progress on specific SDGs may support or undermine progress on foreign policy priorities, especially SDG 16. For each SDG under review, this paper provides a detailed analysis under the annex section and concludes with three steps for action through which foreign policy can better anticipate and steer the geopolitical implications of a sustainable transformation to minimise the risks and maximise the positive impacts on sustainable development.
