Download the report
This second edition of the report aims to provide a data-driven practical tool for governments, policymakers and other stakeholders to measure progress on the SDGs, and to highlight implementation challenges and data gaps at this crucial point in time.

Countries in the Arab region stand to gain—individually and collectively—if they manage to overcome the growing developmental challenges and accelerate efforts to achieve the SDGs. However, for these efforts to generate value and create impact through the many developmental pathways, there are several prerequisites. Among others, these include making available accurate and representative evidence for the many stakeholders, that first, enables an objective localized assessment of the current state of development, and second, empowers all stakeholders with the data that can inform policy options and chart the way forward towards achieving the SDGs. In essence, understanding the current state and changing trends through a data-driven lens should provide clarity on how to overcome the many obstacles highlighted.
“So far, only two Arab countries (the UAE  and Lebanon) achieved SDG 1 (No Poverty). Meanwhile, Palestine is the only country that achieved SGD 14 (Life Below Water).”
The 2022 Arab Region SDG Index and Dashboard comprises 110 indicators covering the 17 SDGs, each of which have an assigned score (0–100) and a traffic light color (green, yellow, orange, or red) to indicate performance. In addition, arrows visually indicate trends in progress towards achieving the goals for those indicators where data for multiple years are available.

The report aims to provide comprehensive evidence and data-driven analysis on the current state and performance trajectories in relation to each of the SDGs, across the 22 Arab countries covered. 

The result is a rich dataset, valuable analysis and an informative policy- and decision-making tool that can support efforts towards developing policy options. The ultimate objective of this effort is to help chart future directions towards sustainable development for each Arab country individually, and for the region as a whole.
