Fast-tracking the SDGs: Driving Asia-Pacific Transformations was prepared under the Asia-Pacific SDG Partnership of ESCAP, ADB and UNDP.

Prospects for success will be influenced by the region’s response and recovery strategies. Transformative approaches that will also address the climate crisis, halt environmental degradation and reduce inequalities are needed.
