Sustainable Development Goals
Singapore's SDG Progress
A snapshot of Singapore’s progress in achieving all 169 targets by 2030 based on the prevailing trend growth of the SDG indicators from the baseline year of 2015 is presented below. Using data up to 2020 or 2021, good or fair progress was observed in meeting 48% of all targets by 2030, while another 7% needed further efforts to spur the progress ahead and 33% required concerted efforts to plug the data gaps (Chart 1).
Chart 1: Overall Progress Distribution of Targets
Among the 17 Goals, Goal 3 (Good Health and Well-being), Goal 4 (Quality Education), Goal 7 (Affordable and Clean Energy) and Goal 13 (Climate Action) had the highest share of good or fair progress made (Chart 2). More efforts are required in terms of accelerating the progress for Goal 2 (Zero Hunger), Goal 9 (Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure), Goal 7 (Affordable and Clean Energy) and Goal 14 (Life Below Water), and for bridging the data gaps in Goal 5 (Gender Equality), Goal 2 (Zero Hunger), Goal 11 (Sustainable Cities and Communities) and Goal 14 (Life Below Water).
