Based on their respective and shared experiences, beyond the JAES, Africa and Europe could offer solutions and compromises that break some of the deadlocks in the UN negotiations.

Overseas Development Institute (ODI); Authors: Andrew Scott et al.

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will set the global development agenda for the next 15 years. Although SDG ambition will be realised at the national level, during their formulation little consideration has been given to how governments set targets and what existing national targets tell us about levels of political ambition. This paper compares existing policy commitments and targets at the national level with corresponding SDG targets to assess the gap between national and global ambition. The aim is to draw a political baseline of SDG ambition to inform the UN target setting process and provide a global snapshot that aids comparisons of ambition between countries.
