Podcast: Reflecting on the 2020 ‘Commission’s Staff working document: Delivering on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals

By SDG Watch Europe

In November 2020, the European Commission published its Staff Working Document (SWD), “Delivering on the UN Sustainable Development Goals – A comprehensive approach”. The SWD explains how the European Commission is “taking forward its commitment to sustainable development, the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs through its internal and external action policies, while also monitoring progress at Member State and European Union levels.”

However, the Staff Working Document merely provides an overview of existing initiatives of the European Commission. Five years after the SDGs were adopted, we have yet only seen a reaffirmation of the EC’s commitment towards the SDGs without real action on what they entail. 

SDG Watch Europe asked key stakeholders what they think the next step should be in the endless effort to achieve the SDGs by 2030.
