With the commencement of the Sustainable Development Goals, it is vital that efforts are made to incorporate the 'leave no one behind' agenda from day one. Our new short film compliments our recent research on what it will take to achieve the SDGs.
Bad news about development often crowds out the good. Yet despite global challenges, we live in an age when more progress has been made than at any other time in history. ODI’s Development Progress project aims to measure, understand and communicate where and how this progress has been made. The project brings together case studies, opinion and in-depth research, with a range of supporting content including infographics, animation and photography.
These infographics explore some of the key issues and statistics raised in our flagship report Projecting progress: reaching the SDGs by 2030. They help to demonstrate the stretch needed to meet the goals within the next 15 years.

Despite starting out with one of the lowest levels of human development in the world in the 1990s, Ethiopia is one of the few African countries on track to meet most of the Millennium Development Goals. This case study explores the drivers of progress and the challenges which remain.
Great progress has been made towards the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), which will expire this year. However some targets are so far off track that their replacement, the Sustainable Development Goals, will expire in 2030 before the orginal targets will be achieved. Overseas Development Institute Research Officer Chris Hoy writes on some of the successes and 'unfinished business' of the MDGs.
Development Progress and Southern Voice are calling for regional research papers to help frame prioritisation for implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals. Deadline for proposals: 2 October.
SDG 1 aims ‘to end poverty in all its forms everywhere’ by 2030. Following its adoption, on 21 October, we are organising a day-long event to launch case studies on pro-poor growth, discuss new World Bank poverty numbers and reflect on how data gaps matter.
