Building on the insights from the 2023 SDG Partnership Report ‘Delivering on the SDGs through Solutions at the Energy, Food and Finance Nexus’, the 2024 SDG Partnership Report examines how overlapping, interconnected crises and the multiplier effect of the climate crisis, exacerbate inequalities across many dimensions beyond income, increasing the vulnerability of individuals to threats such as food insecurity, malnutrition, hunger and enduring poverty.

Cognisant of the need for nexus thinking, the Report highlights synergistic good practices and solutions within the context of climate action, poverty reduction and hunger to encourage their upscaling and replication throughout the region. The Report also identifies actionable policy recommendations to leverage opportunities to advance the SDGs.

The 2024 SDG Partnership Report will be launched at the Eleventh APFSD in Bangkok, Thailand, on Tuesday 20 February 2024 after the afternoon plenary session at 17:30 in the ESCAP Hall. The 60-minute session will consist of presenting the report by senior representatives from the partner organisations and a discussion with a diverse panel of experts. There will be an opportunity for Q&A for the in-person and virtual audience.
