Overall, the SDG Summit demonstrated the continuing strong commitment of the international community to the 2030 Agenda and to multilateral collaboration for achieving the SDGs by 2030

Key Messages from this International conference/SDG Summit:

The commitment to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development remains steadfast at the highest level of government and among stakeholders. Yet it is clear that the world is not on track to meet the SDGs by 2030. The future is now, and the Earth's systems are changing quickly. The SDGs can still be achieved if the international community steps up the speed and ambition of its actions.

Many countries have been proactively implementing the SDGs, incorporating them in policies and strategies, and outlining their long-term vision for transformation to more sustainable and just economies and societies. However, the shared view is that the global response is not yet sufficiently transformative. Most of the 21 targets designated for achievement by 2020 will likely not be met and we are not on track for achieving many other targets by 2030.

Governments cannot do it alone; they are reaching out to forge new partnerships with civil society, businesses, and the scientific and technological community. National plans must reflect a singly interconnected world, and address complex flows of goods, capital, information and people.

For such efforts to be effective, it is imperative that all countries pursue the SDGs as systems, fully recognizing the interconnections across sectors, countries and levels, from global to local. Positive synergies need to be harnessed and difficult trade-offs need to be addressed more quickly and effectively,

Interventions can have multiple impacts across the SDGs: human well-being and capabilities; sustainable and just economics; food systems and nutrition patterns; energy decarbonization with universal access; urban and peri-urban development; and global environmental commons. Across those areas, governance, economy and finance, individual and collective action, and science and technology are important levers that can help countries to achieve positive synergistic impacts across the SDGs.

While there is sufficient knowledge to act now, it is key to ensure that knowledge is available to those who need it. This requires strengthening the science-policy interface and creating knowledge platforms in every country.

Unequal access to scientific data and knowledge systems is a major obstacle to the universal implementation of the 2030 Agenda, particularly for the Least Developed Countries and Small Island Developing States. Urgent action must be taken by development partners to overcome this deficit.

Weaknesses in governance, corruption and declining civic space are major obstacles to the SDGs and promoting human rights and supporting actions to foster peace and justice are essential for progress.

The world is entering a decade that will be decisive for current and future generations, and for all life on the planet. Through the SDG Summit Political Declaration, Heads of State and Government pledged to make the coming decade one of action and delivery.
