EC JRC published its Policy Report on “A sustainable recovery for the EU”

The Joint Research Centre (JRC), the European Commission (EC)’s science and knowledge service, has recently published its policy report on “A sustainable recovery for the EU: A text mining approach to map the EU Recovery Plan to the UN SDGs”. The report aims to demonstrate the link between the Recovery Plan and all 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). More precisely, the results have been analysed per SDGs’ target and per EU Recovery Plan pillar, showing among others that:
  • The first pillar of the EU Recovery Plan, Support Member States in Recovering, has the broader coverage in terms of goals and targets, as it is connected to eight goals
  • The second pillar, Kick-starting the economy, focuses mainly on SDG 9 (Industry, innovation and infrastructure)
  • The third pillar, Learning the lessons from the crisis, focuses on SDG 3 (Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages)
