A Trade Union Take on the SDGs - edition 2023

The report "A Trade Union Take on the SDGs" gives an independent workers’ perspective on how governments are delivering on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as the world continues to face significant obstacles in reaching the objectives set by the 2030 Agenda.

The UN High-Level Political Forum (HLPF) will take place from Monday 10 July to Wednesday 19 July in New York time.

Over these next two weeks, governments from 32 countries will present their Voluntary National Reviews on progress achieved in implementing the SDGs at the national level.

With the support of the ITUC, trade unions in several of these countries have prepared an alternative report that provides an independent workers’ perspective of how the 2030 Agenda is progressing and how that progress, or lack thereof, is impacting working people.

The 2023 edition of this report is based on the results of reports produced by trade unions in 12 countries: Bangladesh, Belgium, Burkina Faso, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Lithuania, Maldives, Peru, Rwanda, Tanzania and Venezuela.

An extraordinary report about the voluntary report of the European Union, produced in collaboration with the European Trade Union Confederation is available here.
