Press release: 12.370-210/20
– The COVID-19 pandemic and the measures to contain it have varying
impacts on Austria's social, ecological and economic sustainability
goals. A predominantly negative effect of the crisis on the development
of the sustainability goals is to be expected for seven out of 17 Sustainable
Development Goals (SDGs) – especially those concerning health, economic
growth or employment. For seven other goals, for example in the area
of environmental and climate protection, an only slightly negative or
even positive effect is likely. The impact on goals concerning land
ecosystems as well as peace and justice is still unclear at present.
This is the result of the monitoring of the 17 sustainability goals
in the current "SDG-Indicators-Report" by Statistics Austria.
