On November 16th, CONCORD will publish its report “Sustainable Development – The stakes could not be higher“. Do not miss this key publication analysing the EU’s implementation of the 2030 Agenda and Policy Coherence for Development and join the launch event in Brussels.


The world is interconnected today. Climate change cannot be addressed without tackling food insecurity, gender inequality, population dynamics, increased migration and mobility, unsustainable economic growth… All pose complex and interrelated challenges that must be addressed in a systemic way. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, that the UN adopted last year, reflects this holistic approach to reach well-being for all within planetary boundaries.

One year later, has the EU developed a strategy yet to take the 2030 Agenda forward? Will such a strategy look both at domestic and external policies? 

To what extend are the EU’s migration, trade and agricultural policies coherent with sustainable development and the 2030 Agenda principles? 

The upcoming CONCORD report titled “Sustainable Development – The Stakes could not be higher” offers recommendations to encourage the EU and its Member States to implement the 2030 Agenda and ensure policy coherence for sustainable development. These recommendations are illustrated by cases from EU Member States and partner countries.
