The Secretary General’s words this morning are ringing in my ears, recognising that at this midway point in achieving this Agenda, we are not on track. Only 12% of the Sustainable Development Goals are where we would want them. As he says, 50% of the measures so far are insufficient and one third are in reverse. This is due to the impacts of COVID, to the global instability and conflict we are seeing, but also structural challenges which pre-date them. First among them, the existential threat of climate change. The stakes could not be higher, and we must all do our part to deliver a better future.
