The annual Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) report is the official UN report that monitors global progress on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Using the latest available data and estimates, it gives the global community a reality check on the devastating impacts of multiple crises affecting people's lives and livelihoods. This report is prepared by the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (ONE DESA) in collaboration with the entire UN Statistical System, composed of more than 50 international and regional agencies, based on data from over 200 countries and territories.
For the 2022 edition of the report, Mozambique received special attention, specifically in the mention of Sustainable Development Goal 15 (SDG15: Indicator 15.4.1), in which it is stated that: Mozambique provides an example of a country that has made excellent progress towards SDG targets 14.5.1, 15.1.2, and 15.4.1, more than doubling mean coverage of its Key Biodiversity Areas by protected areas or other effective area-based conservation measures over the last two decades. Over the last three years, the country has also undertaken a comprehensive process to refine the identification of its Key Biodiversity Areas, delineating 25 terrestrial sites as well as four in the marine environment. These data are being used in Mozambique’s National Territorial Plan and National Marine Spatial Plan to highlight where harmful development should be avoided and to guide protected area expansion.
