About the book
This publication informs inter-governmental and inter-agency regional decision making in support of implementing the 2030 Agenda in the region. It highlights areas where progress has been made concerning Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and areas that need collective decisions for prioritizing acceleration or changing trends. It provides an effective communication tool to foster inclusive regional consultations and effective engagement of the stakeholders including media and civil society. The report uses cross-nationally comparable data from the ESCAP database on the proposed SDGs indicator framework as well as statistics available at the regional and sub-regional levels.
