Global Goals and the Environment: Progress and Prospects

Reducing poverty and improving equity
Posted Sep 30, 2015 | International Institute for Sustainable Development

Protecting the integrity of forests, the health of fish stocks, and keeping the ozone layer intact are of fundamental importance for human well-being. This is particularly true for the poorest and most vulnerable, who are most likely to directly depend on these for their well-being and survival. Efforts to reduce extreme poverty are inseparable from efforts to keep ecosystems and the environment healthy and robust. This report by the International Institute for Sustainable Development reviews progress on Millennium Development Goal (MDG) 7, ‘Ensuring Environmental Sustainability’, and pinpoints targets that have been met, and areas in which progress has been inadequate.
