Cambridge University Press has published the 2021 Sustainable Development Report. Georgia has improved its position by two places and ranked 56th in the world ranking of 165 countries assessed in terms of achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals. It should be noted that according to the 2020 report, our country was ranked 58th, and in 2017 - 66th.
A team of independent researchers working on sustainable development, led by Jeffrey Sachs, director of the Sustainable Development Research Center at Columbia University, evaluated 93 different criteria for 17 global sustainable development goals. These criteria address the current global challenges facing the world, namely poverty, inequality, prosperity, education, peace and justice, as well as climate and environmental challenges.
Georgia's success has been driven by progress in areas such as the Fourth Sustainable Development Goal - Quality Education, as well as the Justice Index, corporate tax relief, freedom of the press, and more.
According to the study, Georgia is ranked among the top 30 countries in the world in terms of "quality education", and is among the top 10 countries in Europe, where the goal of sustainable development has been achieved.
In addition, significant success has been identified in indicators such as the 2020 Justice Index, which measures access to the justice system. Georgia is ranked 28th out of 126 countries in the world and 15th in the top platoon in Europe with the status of "Achieving the goal of sustainable development."
Also, Georgia showed a good result in such an indicator as the property rights index, where it ranked 32nd in the world and 14th in the top platoon in Europe.
According to the report, in total, Georgia has improved 10 sustainable development goals and 40 criteria, out of which 33 indicators have been significantly improved. It should be noted that in 38 indicators of sustainable development, Georgia was assessed as "achieved the goal of sustainable development."
The United Nations publishes an annual report on the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. The 2021 report is already the 7th edition.
On September 25, 2015, the United Nations General Assembly adopted Resolution A / RES / 70/1 - "Transforming Our World: A 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development". In 2015, the Georgian government administration was tasked with leading and coordinating the process of nationalizing the goals of sustainable development at a high political level. As a result of the consultations, all 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals and 93 objectives were identified as national priorities. Each of these goals and objectives must be met by 2030.
It is noteworthy that the Unified Education and Science Strategy and Action Plan for 2022-2032, which is currently being worked on, will be in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals and Objectives.
