Abstract

On Target for 2030? assesses Scotland’s progress against the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by providing reviews on each goal, authored by expert organisations operating within each field in Scotland.

This collaborative research report is a compilation of independent assessments provided by 22 civil society organisations and has been produced – under the auspices of the UWS-Oxfam Partnership and in collaboration with the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO) as host of the SDG Network Scotland – without any government involvement. It is important to note that there has been only minimal editorial input into the assessments, so that they truly reflect the views and voices of those who wrote them. The ‘snapshot review’ does not claim to be a comprehensive assessment of ‘how Scotland is doing’, hence its name. Compiled to coincide with the publication of the UK Government and Scottish Government reviews, the snapshot review adds a valuable independent element to the overall evaluation of how far Scotland has come and what remains to be done.
