Arab Sustainable Development Report 2024

July 2024

The Arab Sustainable Development Report (ASDR) is a quadrennial flagship publication produced by the Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) in collaboration with United Nations entities working in the Arab region. It supports the follow-up and review of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development at the regional and subregional levels.

Building on the structural barriers identified in ASDR 2020 and its recommendations to dismantle them, ASDR 2024 analyzes the policy directions on priority areas to achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the 22 Arab countries. It identifies opportunities to achieve SDG progress as well as gaps where more, or different, efforts are needed. ASDR 2024 highlights the potential for regional action to achieve the 17 SDGs, while emphasizing the financial landscape and challenges. The report also addresses national policies to leave no one behind and to secure the human rights and well-being of everyone in a prosperous and peaceful Arab region.
