Building the Future: Children and Sustainable Development Goals in Rich Countries – Innocenti Report*

Building the Future: Children and Sustainable Development Goals in Rich Countries is the latest in the Innocenti Report Card series, which analyses inequality in 41 high-income countries. It looks at how far children are falling behind in the dimensions of income, education, health and life satisfaction.

Other key findings include:

  • An average of 1 in 8 children in high-income countries faces food insecurity, rising to 1 in 5 in the United Kingdom and the United States.
  • 1 in 4 adolescents reports two or more mental health issues more than once a week.
  • 20 per cent of 15-year-olds do not reach minimum proficiency levels in reading, mathematics and science.
  • 14 per cent of adults surveyed in 17 rich countries believe that boys deserve preference for university education.

This report is a wake-up call. UNICEF is urging high-income countries to take action in several key areas, most notably, to put the well-being of children at the heart of long-term development plans.
