ACCELERATING PROGRESS

Bringing together a new generation of leaders to accelerate progress toward the Global Goals

Goalkeepers Report

The Goalkeepers Report is published every year and charts the progress toward the Global Goals. This year’s report focuses on inequality: what it is, why it exists, and how its complex layers affect so many people’s lives. The report also includes all the data tracking global progress—a set of 18 indicators that show, every year, what’s changing and why. Read the report, dig into the data, and see what the numbers mean for real people and communities.
