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.

Global report assesses how privatization and corporate capture have become obstacles to progress under the 2030 Agenda.

The 2017 Spotlight on Sustainable Development report provides a comprehensive independent assessment of the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals. The 2017 edition focuses on privatization, partnerships, corporate capture and the impact they have on sustainability and inequality. According to the report, it is time to counter privatization trends, reclaim public policy space and take bold measures to strengthen public finance, regulate/reject PPPs to – in effect – weaken the grip of corporate power on people’s lives. These are indispensable prerequisites to achieve the SDGs and to turn the 2030 Agenda into reality.
