Measuring up: How the UK is performing on the Sustainable Development Goals

UKSSD's report ‘Measuring up’ shows how the UK is performing on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for the first time. And while there’s an enormous amount to celebrate, the most vulnerable people and places in our society are increasingly being left behind.

By 2020 Measuring up had been downloaded more than 12,000 times, featured in the media and in numerous debates and discussions, including in Parliament. 

Out of 143 relevant targets, UKSSD found that the UK is performing well on 24% (green), with 57% where there are gaps in policy coverage or performance is not adequate (amber), and 15% where there is little or no policy in place to address the target or the performance is poor (red).
