SDG Mapping for Logistics Connectivity

With the release of the 17 SDGs, trade facilitation has been mentioned in proposed targets 8a, 9.1 and 17.10, 17.11 and 17.12 in the newly published document with trade playing immense importance in goals 1, 8, 12, 13 and 17. These specified targets seek to enhance trade in developing countries through improved connectivity; however FIATA advocates that more emphasis and focus should be placed on logistics connectivity beyond the text of proposed targets. 

During its 7th session the OWG recommended that there should not be a dedicated SDG on transport and that the cross-sectorial nature of transport is best served by integrating transport in a range of SDGs. This proposal by the OWG was carried through, as we can see in their newly published Goals and Targets document. Transport and trade were not given stand-alone Sustainable Development Goals, but were mentioned across a range of proposed SDGs
