Bangladesh ranked 5th in the South Asian region leaving behind India, Pakistan, and Afghanistan

Bangladesh and two other countries – Afghanistan and Cote d’Ivoire – have progressed the most on the SDGs Index score since the adoption of the 2030 global agenda in 2015, according to the Sustainable Development Report 2021.

The report was launched on Monday by the Sustainable Development Solution Network (SDSN).

The report said East and South Asia has progressed more on the SDGs than any other region, both since 2010 and since the adoption of the goals in 2015.

By contrast, the three countries that have declined the most are Venezuela, Tuvalu and Brazil.

However, the global average SDG index score has decreased for the first time since the adoption of the SDGs in 2015.

The global decline in performance, including in OECD countries, was driven to a large extent by increased poverty rates and unemployment in 2020.

In the report, Bangladesh has been ranked 109th with the overall score 63.5 in the 2021 SDG index.

Finland has been ranked 1st with 85.9 score. The four other countries in the top five positions are Sweden (85.6), Denmark (84.9), Germany (82.5) and Belgium (82.2).

In the South Asia, Bhutan (70) is in 75th position, Maldives (69.3) in 79th, Sri Lanka (68.1) in 87th position, Nepal (66.5) in 96th, India (60.1) in 120th, Pakistan (57.7) in 129th, and Afghanistan (53.9) in 137th position.
