Lusophones far from eradicating poverty, but achieving development objectives

Lusophone countries continue to fail to achieve the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) of eradicating poverty, with the exception of Portugal, although practically all CPLP members have managed to achieve one of the 17 goals.


According to the 9th edition of the Sustainable Development Report, released this Monday by the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN), none of the eight countries that, together with Portugal, make up the Community of Countries of Portuguese Language (CPLP), managed to eradicate poverty, the first of the 17 SDGs.

Angola, in fact, registered a decline in achieving this objective, with Cape Verde being indicated as being "on the right track", although with challenges remaining.

The majority of CPLP countries have stagnated in the purpose of this SDG, namely Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique, São Tomé and Príncipe and Timor-Leste. Brazil also stagnated, continuing "significant challenges" in this matter, while Equatorial Guinea did not present data.

Portugal is the only CPLP country that has achieved the objective of eradicating poverty.

In the 'ranking' of 167 countries evaluated on compliance with the United Nations SDGs, led by Finland, the Portuguese-speaking countries (in addition to Portugal) only appear after the second third of those classified, with Brazil registering the highest place (52nd ).

Cape Verde occupies 88th place, being the best-ranked Portuguese-speaking African country (PALOP).

Of the remaining Portuguese speakers that appear in this 'ranking', São Tomé and Príncipe (118th), Mozambique (148th), Angola (155th) and Guinea-Bissau (156th) follow.

In terms of the SDGs achieved by these countries, with the exception of Timor-Leste, all achieved one or more objectives.

Brazil achieved the objective of renewable and accessible energy and partnerships to implement the objectives.

Cape Verde, São Tomé and Príncipe and Guinea-Bissau achieved SDG 13 – climate action, while Mozambique, Angola and Equatorial Guinea achieved SDG 12 – sustainable protection and consumption.

As in previous years, European countries lead the 2024 SDG Index. Finland occupies first place in the SDG Index, followed by Sweden, Denmark, Germany and France, countries where, however, there are "significant challenges in achievement of several SDGs", according to the report's authors.

The last three places in the report are occupied by Chad (165th), Central African Republic (166th) and South Sudan (167th).
