The COVID-19 pandemic is negatively impacting the European Union’s (EU) progress towards achieving the 2030 Agenda and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a 2021 Eurostat report has found.
The pandemic is halting progress towards achieving Goals concerning the economy and the labour market (SDG 8), education (SDG 4), gender equality (SDG 5), inequalities (SDG 10) and global partnerships (SDG 17).
The EU has made the greatest progress towards fostering ‘just, peaceful and inclusive societies’ (SDG 16), but there were less positive developments in areas such as ‘affordable and clean energy’ (SDG 7).
