Australia’s first report on the Sustainable Development Goals
Australia delivered its first report on the Sustainable Development Goals (Voluntary National Review) at the UN High Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF) on 17 July 2018. The report was launched domestically on 15 June by The Hon Julie Bishop MP, Minister for Foreign Affairs.
The Voluntary National Review is a 'whole of Australia' report. It is not just about government initiatives and activity: it is about the efforts of the business sector, civil society, academia, communities and individuals. Australians are contributing to achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals through their work in the care economy, by volunteering, by preserving the natural environment and through their everyday activities.
