    Like the other UN Member States, Ukraine joined the global process of sustainable development. During 2016 and 2017 a participatory and inclusive process of adaptation of the SDGs to the Ukrainian context took place. Every global target was reviewed, taking into consideration the specifics of the national context. This process has resulted in the establishment of the national system which consists of 86 national development targets.


    National targets and indicators for monitoring the achievement of targets are reflected in the national baseline report “Sustainable Development Goals: Ukraine”. The established national system of targets and indicators of the Sustainable Development Goals provides a solid basis for further comprehensive monitoring. In total, 17 goals and 86 national targets have been incorporated into 145 Government decisions, and 1,052 tasks and 3465 measures foreseen in these acts have been directed towards the achievement of goals and targets.


    On September 30, 2019, the President of Ukraine issued a Decree “On Sustainable Development Goals of Ukraine for the period till 2030” in which he supported the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals and the results of their adaptation, taking into account the specific development of Ukraine set out in the national baseline report “Sustainable Development Goals: Ukraine ”.


    At the governmental level, the process of forming an Inter-Agency Working Group on Achieving Sustainable Development Goals, a temporary advisory body of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine, is currently underway to ensure coordination of executive authorities' efforts to achieve global goals in Ukraine.


    Ukraine is to undertake a Voluntary National Review on achieving Sustainable Development Goals and present it at the ECOSOR High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development on July 10-17, 2020 in New York. At present, a working group has been formed under the auspices of the Ministry of Economic Development, Trade and Agriculture of Ukraine, which has begun the preparation of the review.
