Failure to successfully meet targets set up in Goal 9 will result in:

  • delays in the development of modern infrastructure;
  • slowdown in technological progress;
  • limiting access to basic services.

Currently, according to a 2020 UN report, global infrastructure investment must increase by approximately $1.7 trillion annually by 2030 to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. This represents about 3% of global GDP.
According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), investment in clean energy, such as renewable energy, must increase up to more then $1.6 trillion annually by 2030 to reduce climate change and meet climate goals.
According to a report by the Global Commission on the Economy and Climate, sustainable industries could help create around 380 million new jobs by 2030 and contribute to $26 trillion in economic growth
According to the International Labor Organization (ILO), the introduction of sustainable practices in the construction sector can contribute to reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by 44% and at the same time create approximately 30 million new jobs by 2030
