Progress towards achieving Goal 17 has been mixed. On the one hand, there have been some advances in areas such as development aid, remittances flows and access to technology. However, funding for development remains a major challenge, in particular in low-income countries. Many developing countries are battling record inflation, rising interest rates and looming debt burdens, competing priorities, and limited fiscal space.
On the basis of 2021 data from 130 economies, government revenue accounted for approximately 33 per cent of GDP on average. In addition, the average overall tax burden or revenue in the form of taxes was 26 per cent of GDP among advanced economies and 17 per cent of GDP among emerging market and developing economies.
Net ODA flows amounted to $206 billion (current price) in 2022, an increase of 15.3 per cent in real terms compared with 2021.
In 2022, an estimated 66 per cent of the world’s population (5.3 billion) used the Internet, compared with 40 per cent (3 billion) in 2015. Globally, 259 million more men than women used the Internet in 2022.
Uzbekistan is actively involved in the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals. UN agencies have assisted the government in implementing country development programs since 1993. Since 1992, the total amount of financial assistance to the UN system has amounted to about 471 million US dollars. This financial support was expressed in the transfer of best practices of other countries for the development of Uzbekistan.
The Sustainable Development Goals are of particular importance for the republic, because for the first time in the history of the United Nations, in the process of a comprehensive global consultation process, a unified vision of development until 2030 was developed. This agenda was approved by 193 UN member states and, thus, represents a universal vision of the world until 2030. The idea of the SDGs is that the process of economic development should go hand in hand with improving social protection and involving vulnerable groups in the development process.
In general, the consistent implementation of the reforms carried out in Uzbekistan should contribute to the successful achievement of the goals outlined in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, as well as to the growth of well-being of the population and the solution of pressing socio-economic issues in the country.
