Uncertainties, risks and policy challenges

While many of the fragilities from the global financial crisis have eased, a number of uncertainties still loom on the horizon, with the potential to derail the recent upturn in global economic growth. Despite the recent uptick, the pace of global growth remains imbalanced and insufficient to make rapid progress towards achieving the ambitious targets set out in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. If downside risks to the outlook were to materialize, global growth rates could slow, with more setbacks towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), particularly those of eradicating extreme poverty and creating decent jobs.
