This report presents the information about the progress of IsDB Member Countries (MCs) towards the SDG targets. Like other parts of the world, IsDB MCs still have a long way to go if they are to reach the SDG targets by 2030. The overall SDG Index score of IsDB MCs stands at 61.0, suggesting that IsDB as a group is just over 60 percent to achieving the 17 SDGs.
The report clearly identifies that the most challenging SDG dimension for IsDB MCs is the Prosperity dimension, particularly on Goal 9 (Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure). Indeed, the sectors that constitute Goal 9 (Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure) are the core and essential sectors for the development of each MC. Therefore, the IsDB Group may direct its limited resources to improving sectors related to Goal 9. As there are existing interlinkages among the SDGs, by improving Goal 9, the IsDB Group will directly contribute towards the enhancement of other Goals, which its MCs are still struggling to address.
