This involves improving regulation and monitoring of financial markets and institutions, encouraging development assistance, and directing investment to regions where the need is greatest. Facilitating the safe migration and mobility of people is also key to bridging the widening divide. To achieve our overall assessment for this SDG, we rate only one target: 10.1, on achieving and sustaining income growth for the bottom 40 % of the population at a rate that is higher than the national average. Most of the other targets involve issues that we have been unable to quantify at present.
With growing inequalities generally worldwide, none of the regions reach the goal, and all get a red rating. There is significant uncertainty in our assessment, and, taking into account that regional differences are likely to reduce, a better rating could have been given.
Understanding the score
Five regions: USA, OECD (excl. USA), China, BRISE (Brazil, Russia, India, South Africa and 10 other emerging economies), ROW (rest of the world).
Green light: Goal likely to be reached.
Orange light: Goal not likely to be reached, but more than 50% of the gap between today's status and the goal is likely to be closed.
Red light: Goal not likely to be reached, and less than 50% of the gap between today's status and the goal is likely to be closed.
