Spotlight Report 2017 zeigt, dass Privatisierung und Macht von Unternehmen die Umsetzung der Agenda 2030 beeinträchtigen.

Report by the Civil Society Reflection Group on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

In the 2030 Agenda governments committed to a revitalized Global Partnership between States and declared that public finance has to play a vital role in achieving the SDGs. But in recent decades, the combination of neoliberal ideology, corporate lobbying, regressive fiscal policies, tax avoidance and tax evasion has led to a massive weakening of the public sector and its ability to provide essential goods and services.

A global coalition of civil society organizations and trade unions presented on July 10th the report Spotlight on Sustainable Development 2017. It was published on the opening day of the High Level Political Forum at the United Nations in New York. The report provides the most comprehensive independent assessment of the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Reclaiming policies for the public. Privatization, partnerships, corporate capture and their impact on sustainability and inequality - assessments and alternatives.

This Spotlight Report 2016 produced by an international alliance of CSOs and networks, intends to contribute to this objective. It analyses and assesses the extent to which policies are framed by the ambitious principles of the 2030 Agenda, particularly the human rights framework. It highlights particularly the role of the rich and powerful actors in the global system, based on their economic influence and political weight in international decision-making. However, it is impossible to undertake a comprehensive assessment of the political implementation of the 2030 Agenda less than a year after its adoption. As implementation of the 2030 Agenda gets further underway, these Spotlight reports will be issued regularly.

Together with the Reflection Group on Sustainable Development, a global alliance of civil society organizations and trade unions, Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung launched in July the “Spotlight on Sustainable Development 2017”. See the video here.

This shadow report counters the official discussions at the UN headquarters, providing its own comprehensive and independent assessment of the implementation of each of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), based on experiences and reports by national and regional groups and coalitions from all parts of the world.
