The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), adopted by the United Nations pursuant to General Assembly resolution 70/1 of 25 September 2015, present a general framework for development until 2030. Transport is not a stand-alone goal under the 17 SDGs but its issues are evident across several SDGs, because they are relevant to many economic and social activities and play a key role in development. This report presents the SDGs related to transport issues and examines the mutual effects between transport systems and several SDGs in the Arab countries. It also reviews the so-called “systems approach” as a comprehensive conceptual framework for analysing transport aspect and issues, which highlights the interrelationships between the components of a transport system’s general environment, the elements of this system and the outcomes of its work. The document further sets out general principles for incorporating the SDGs in transport strategies on the basis of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
