Following our flagship report on global projections for the SDGs to 2030 last September, we've taken a closer look at how progress is shaping up on current trends in sub-Saharan Africa. The report finds that there is much work to be done and that progress must be sped up, but also finds some shining examples that must be replicated across the region.
This paper shows how sub-Saharan Africa is likely to progress across the SDG agenda by 2030, if current trends continue. Although we can expect gains for many of the goals and targets, low starting points and inequality both within and between countries will make sub-Saharan Africa’s achievement of the global goals particularly difficult.
