The SDGs pose a number of pressing challenges, one of which is the struggle to end child marriage. Co-author of our new report Projecting progress: the SDGs in sub-Saharan Africa Thomas Aedy takes a look at trends on this goal and the vital importance of success.
Susan Nicolai, lead author of our new report projecting sub-Saharan Africa's progress on the SDGs to 2030, writes on the key findings from the report and what they mean for early action around the implementation of the goals in the region.
The "first 1000 days" of life are critical for a child's future: and the same is true of global agreements such as the Sustainable Development Goals.

If we are to be serious about the SDGs, we need to ensure that people aren't left behind by looking behind national averages. In this blog, the example of child mortality shows the close attention needed to ensure the most marginalised aren't forgotten.
How far this year's new development frameworks show progress on breaking down silos, tackling inequality, rethinking finance, getting good data, and shifting from global to local action.
