Recycling and green spaces must take a back seat to ending hunger, poverty

Between 2000 and 2015 the world made great progress on the Millennium Development Goals, which aimed to hit important targets in education, income growth, fighting disease and so on. In 2015, world leaders followed up that success by establishing the Sustainable Development Goals, a hodge-podge of 169 priorities. We’re now halfway to the target date of 2030 and, not surprisingly, progress has been minimal. In part, COVID setbacks are to blame but the crucial problem is lack of focus. Today, Bjorn Lomborg kicks off a 12-part weekly series in which he and his colleagues at the Copenhagen Consensus think tank set a “Do-able Dozen” priorities for salvaging the SDGs.
