ASviS 2020 report - Italy and the Sustainable Development Goals

The 2020 Report of the Italian Alliance for Sustainable Development (ASviS) analyses the progress of Italy with respect to the implementation of the 17 Goals of the 2030 Agenda. The report also illustrates an organic framework of proposals, indicating the areas in which action must be taken to ensure economic sustainability, social and environmental aspects of our development model.

For Italy, the path towards the UN 2030 Agenda, which already appeared uphill before the crisis, becomes even more difficult. In 2020, there will be a worsening of 9 out of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). This is why ASviS calls on to take the path towards a "right" ecological transition, capable of generating new employment as well as economic and social development, using EU and national resources in a coherent way to relaunch the country with a view to economic, social and environmental sustainability.

Compared to 21 of the 169 SDGs Targets which should have been achieved by 2020, the situation appears completely unsatisfactory: in 12 cases, Italy appears far from the reference values, from the reduction of victims of road traffic accidents to the number of Youth not in Education, Employment or Training (NEET), from the definition by the cities of plans for the management of natural disasters to the defence of biodiversity.

The 2020 Report provides a picture of the initiatives implemented in the world, in Europe, and in Italy, in favour of sustainable development, evaluates the policies implemented in the last 12 months, and makes proposals to accelerate Italy's path towards the implementation of the 2030 Agenda.

The Italian Alliance for Sustainable Development (ASviS) was established with the aim to raise the awareness of the Italian society, economic stakeholders and institutions about the importance of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and to mobilise them in order to pursue the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
