Europe is at the crossroads of Sustainable Development
Brussels, 16 November 2016 – The European Union will not achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in 14 years if it does not adopt an overall strategy. Without that strategy, the incoherencies of EU policies will make that impossible, given the integrated nature of the 2030 Agenda, shows the new CONCORD report on Sustainable Development, titled “Sustainable Development – The Stakes could not be higher”.
The EU urgently needs the courage and conviction to take a great leap towards a sustainable future, following good practice by some of its Member States such as Finland.
By adopting an ambitious overarching strategy for sustainable development and guiding European policies towards transformation, the EU and its Member States can make a real difference, for people in Europe and around the world.
