In September 2015, world leaders will meet to adopt a universal and transformative agenda for sustainable development, with a set of sustainable development goals (SDGs) at its core. The scientific community has provided valuable guidance in the formulation of the SDGs, and it will need
to remain closely engaged as the world moves towards implementing the new agenda and reviewing our progress. The current report should help ensure that our efforts are underpinned by the latest and best scientific evidence and advice. The GSDR is the only comprehensive, global report on sustainable development. It brings together a broad range of existing scientific assessments and reviews global progress and future sustainable
development pathways in an integrated way, taking into account the perspectives of scientific communities across the globe.
