We are pleased to introduce the annual report on Norway’s follow-up of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. This report shows that our efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals can turn challenges into opportunities. By seeking to combat poverty and climate change, we are also compelled to find innovative solutions in other areas.
The report confirms that we are moving in the right direction. Norway has, according to the OECD, achieved 25 of the 102 relevant indicators, and is not far from reaching several others. Status for the five goals under special review at the High-level Political Forum (HLPF) 2019, signals that Norway is in a good position to realise the 2030 Agenda at national level.
