Delivering on the Sustainable Development Goals through Solutions at the Energy, Food and Finance Nexus: 2023 Asia–Pacific SDG Partnership Report

Institutional Document | March 2023

This report shows how cascading crises are pushing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) out of reach of Asia and the Pacific economies and explains how energy, food, and finance systems can boost resilience and kickstart development progress.

It analyzes how soaring living costs sparked by the current polycrisis have seen millions spiral into poverty, exposed fresh vulnerabilities, and erased a decade of development progress. It explores how ramping up innovations to transform energy, food, and finance systems can renew the push towards the SDGs by helping tackle the growing impacts of climate change and spurring an inclusive and green sustainable future.
