Monitoring progress in achieving Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) defined in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is a significant requirement for the development and implementation of effective development policies, which take into account the fully understood sustainable development and that no one is left out of the development processes. In this report the progress in achieving sustainable development goals in Serbia is monitored in a comparative perspective, in comparison to EU-27, whose membership Serbia aspires to and whose normative framework and development standards Serbia should comply with. The comparison was also conducted with the countries in the region, the candidate countries for EU membership: Albania, Montenegro and North Macedonia, according to the possibilities enabled by the data availability. This report was initiated by the “Public Finance Reform – 2030 Agenda” project supported by the Governments of Germany and Switzerland and implemented by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, and builds on previous initiatives carried out in cooperation with the Statistical Office of the Republic of Serbia (SORS).
The report was made on the basis of data from the Eurostat database, the situation at the end of April 2022.
