Following the publication of the EC Refection Paper, SDG Watch Europe published this reaction to express its disappointment.
SDG Watch Europe deeply “regrets that the paper stays very vague and does not contain any concrete plan, targets or timeline. Five years after the adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the EU is still in the phase of “Reflection”, without have a plan of implementation on the SDGs, which are quite concrete in targets.
Claiming that sustainability is in the” DNA” of Europe and that we are global frontrunners in sustainable development, is not only self-congratulatory but factually wrong. On too many SDGs, the EU and its Members States can demonstrate only insufficient success or even regression.”
