The first section of this report – ‘General Reflections and Key Concerns’ – sets out some of the most pressing issues with regard to Ireland’s SDG performance from the standpoint of Coalition 2030. Chief among these are the weaknesses in Ireland’s recently-published National Implementation Plan; its poor performance in meeting commitments on overseas development aid (ODA); its continuing facilitation of
international tax abuse; and extremely worrying trends in greenhouse gas emissions.
Following this, individual sections on each of the 17 SDGs analyse Ireland’s performance to date. Each of these chapters sets out existing policy commitments corresponding to the Goal in question, along with recent trends in relevant targets and indicators, before providing a set of actionable recommendations that, if implemented, would serve to ensure achievement.
