In the outcome document of the Rio+20 Conference, in 2012, entitled “The future we want”, and again in “Transforming
our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”, in 2015, United Nations Member States decided that the HighLevel Political Forum on Sustainable Development would be informed by the Global Sustainable Development Report. In
the Ministerial Declaration of the 2016 Forum, Member States decided that the report would be produced quadrennially
by an independent group of scientists appointed by the United Nations Secretary-General and comprising 15 experts
representing a variety of backgrounds, scientific disciplines and institutions, with geographical and gender balance.
This report, The Future is Now: Science for Achieving Sustainable Development, is the first quadrennial Global Sustainable
Development Report prepared by an independent group of scientists.
