Insight of the Week: Climate Action Remains the Most Urgent Sustainable Development Goal

When considering the urgency of all 17 of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), experts rate Climate Action as the most urgent goal.

The top five most urgent SDGs are Climate Action, Zero Hunger, No Poverty, Reduced Inequalities, and Affordable and Clean Energy. 

However, many experts rate progress on the SDGs as poor and find that progress on many critical issues is still too slow.
