[Extract] The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were designed in 2015 to facilitate the transition to a more sustainable world by the year 2030. The ambition level and clarity of the goals is positive and progress has been made, especially through the use of integrated assessment models. However, the lack of direction on the transition path and the institutional arrangement to reach the goals, has limited the success of the program. The SDGs have also been argued to be too wide and general and to give too little attention to the “bottom billion”, those people trapped in extreme poverty. For these bottom billion, mostly located in Africa and central Asia, the likelihood is very low that the SDGs will be reached.
