“2030 Sustainable Development Agenda may not be realized”

There is fear that the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda may not be realized if the economic situation globally does not change.
This is according to “Dr. Kirsten Thompson, the Director of Research at Plus Economics, when she recently presented the United Nations World Economic Situation and Prospects 2020 report.

The Report states that growth of 2.5% in 2020 is possible, but a flare up of trade tensions, financial turmoil, or an escalation of geopolitical tensions could derail a recovery. In a downside scenario, global growth would slow to just 1.8% this year.
