This report examines how the public sector can foster integrated approaches to implementing the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It examines challenges and opportunities for integrated approaches, highlighting past experiences. It examines how governments across the world have chosen to address existing interlinkages among the SDGs, and their implications for public institutions. It aims to produce a comprehensive empirical analysis of policy integration for the SDGs at the national level, with a view to drawing lessons on how emerging initiatives aiming to policy and institutional integration might lead to success in achieving the SDGs in different contexts. Concrete examples are given.



Realizing the SDGs in post-conflict situations

This chapter explores the challenges to realizing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in post-conflict situations and their implications for integrated approaches that advance both sustainable development and peace. Globally, between one and a half and two billion people live in countries that are affected by conflict, violence and fragility. These countries face the greatest share of the global development deficit. Conflicts, in fact, reduce a country’s gross domestic product (GDP) growth by two percentage points per year, on average. People in these contexts are more likely to be impoverished, to miss out on schooling, and to lack access to basic health services and means for decent livelihood.
