Bangladesh is ahead of neighbouring India and Pakistan in the index

Bangladesh has moved seven notches up in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Index 2020 as it ranked 109th among 166 countries. 

Last year, Bangladesh ranked 116th out of 162 countries, reports BSS.

Overall, the country improved its ranking and score in the 2020 edition of the report. 

The position is ahead of India (117th) and Pakistan (134th) within South Asia, as per the recently released report.

The Sustainable Development Report 2020 presents the SDG Index and Dashboards for all UN member states and frames the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in terms of six broad transformations. 

It was prepared by teams of independent experts at the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) and the Bertelsmann Stiftung. 

The SDG dashboard highlighted that Bangladesh faces major challenges in reaching seven SDGs out of 17—SDG 2, 3, 6, 9, 11, 16, and 17.

Also, there are six significant challenges facing the country with the goal of sustainable development.

However, the SDG dashboard indicates Bangladesh has achieved SDG 12 and 13.

Director of the Sustainable Development Solutions Network and first author of the report, Jeffrey D Sachs said: “The Sustainable Development Goals are needed more than ever.

“Their bedrock principles of social inclusion, universal access to public services, and global cooperation are the guideposts for fighting Covid-19 as well as for the investment-led recovery the world should adopt to overcome the economic crisis caused by the pandemic.”
