Background

Part I of the report addresses how the current expansive mode of development degrades and exceeds the Earth’s finite capacity to sustain human well-being. The world is failing to meet most of its commitments to limit environmental damage and this increasingly threatens the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Part II of the report addresses the transformational changes required to achieve a sustainable world. It also assesses the roles and responsibilities of different actors and presents options for action in the interconnected sectors of environment, economics, finance, energy, food, water, health and cities.
