About the book
The main objective of this report is to assess regional and subregional progress towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and targets. It highlights areas of SDGs where the region has made progress and areas that need collective decisions for prioritizing acceleration or changing the trend. It also provides an effective communication tool that fosters inclusive regional consultations and effective engagement of the stakeholders including media and civil society. It uses cross-nationally comparable data from ESCAP database on the proposed SDGs indicator framework and when necessary uses supplementary statistics available at the regional and sub-regional levels.
