It has been eight years since the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) were adopted at the UN General Assembly, and nations began to work toward achieving them. Now we are halfway through the 2030 target period. As an authorized national focal point of SDG data, the Statistics Research Institute has been publishing a 『Sustainable Development Goals in the Republic of Korea: Progress Report』 annually, in keeping with their vision of providing support for ‘eviꠓdence-based decision-making’.
『SDG in the Republic of Korea: Progress Report 2023』, released this, was designed as a compass identifying goals to be prioritized in policy implementation during the remaining period until 2030 to keep pace for achieving the SDGs. It is hoped that the report will help to point out the direction for policies responding to the crises and changes we are facing amid the COVID pandemic, the climate crisis, and war, through relevant indicators.
