1. On Friday, May 20, on the occasion of the first meeting of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Promotion Headquarters, the Government of Japan, as the G7 presidency this year, released the Ise-Shima Progress Report: G7 accountability on development and development-related commitments (see the attached summary). This Report reviewed the progress on the implementation of the commitments G7 has made. The Report highlights the important contribution that the G7 is making to the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
2. At the L’Aquila Summit in 2009, the G7 Leaders have agreed to publish a comprehensive accountability report every three years in order to review the progress made on our individual and collective development-related commitments. Comprehensive accountability reports were published in 2010 for the Muskoka Summit and in 2013 for the Lough Erne Summit. The Ise-Shima Progress Report was compiled as the third volume under Japan’s Presidency.
3. In the Report, 51 commitments from 2002 Kananaskis Summit to 2015 Elmau Summit are evaluated on a five-tier scale, covering the following 10 sectors: Aid and Aid Effectiveness, Economic Development, Health, Water and Sanitation, Food Security, Education, Equality, Governance, Peace and Security and Environment and Energy.
