Friday, June 30, 2023

In June Liechtenstein released the findings of its second Voluntary National Review on the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

In its summary, the report states that:

Overall, the implementation of the SDGs [Sustainable Development Goals] in Liechtenstein is developing positively. As the report shows, several SDGs are well implemented, in particular SDGs 1 (Poverty), 2 (Hunger), 3 (Health), 4 (Education), 6 (Water), 8 (Work), and SDG 16 (Peaceful Societies). The COVID-19 pandemic clearly demonstrated the strong crisis resilience of the state, the economy, and society, as well as the central importance of cross-border cooperation for crisis response.

The report does highlight areas that need further improvements, such as reconciling family and careers, as well as greater political participation of women; more mobility options to decrease dependence on individual motorized transport; climate protection; an increase in the sustainability of resource consumption; and further developing Liechtenstein's Official Development Assistance (ODA) to come closer to the international target of .7 percent.
