Pathways to Sustainability

The Asia-Pacific region has never been better equipped to tackle existing and emerging development challenges than it is today. With the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs, the region has the blueprint for the future in terms of global sustainable development and supportive financing, as well as a new agreement on climate action. It also has the resources needed to implement the SDGs but with more than 2.6 billion people in the region still living on less than $2 per day, many significant challenges remain.

This report is a reflection of the work ESCAP is undertaking to support its member States in implementing the 2030 Agenda. It includes links to our analytical work and e-learning tools that we hope will be useful for these member States, as well as other stakeholders, in the Asia-Pacific region and beyond.
