STRENGTHENING THE ENVIRONMENTAL DIMENSIONS OF THE SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS IN ASIA AND THE PACIFIC
Beyond their inclusivity and universality, one of the more notable features of the Sustainable Development Goals
(SDGs) and their 169 targets is that they place an equal emphasis on the economic, social, and environmental dimensions of sustainable development. Recent SDG status reports indicate that implementation of SDGs with a stronger environmental focus show limited progress. Asia and the Pacific is arguably the region with the greatest need for strengthening national responses to the environmental dimensions. This need reflects that the region’s exceptional growth comes at steep environmental costs undermining the prospects for sustained economic growth and social development within, and even beyond, the region.
