Report Launch: The Invasion of Ukraine: Implications for the SDGs in Russia

Like all UN member states, Russia declared its commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2015. On February 24, 2022, Russia launched a full-scale invasion of the territory of a sovereign state, Ukraine, accompanied by the shelling of peaceful cities.

The civil society Coalition for Sustainable Development of Russia (CSDR) has conducted an analysis of the implementation of the SDGs in Russia since February 2022, since the situation in the country changed dramatically due to the outbreak of aggression against Ukraine. In this report, CSDR has reviewed all the SDGs - from human right to climate change - describing what has changed in the implementation of each of the SDGs since February 24, 2022, and how these changes have affected Russia's international cooperation.

We invite you and your colleagues to join the presentation of the report which will take place on March 1st, 2023 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm at the House of Democracy and Human Rights (Haus der Demokratie und Menschenrechte).
