National benchmark values suggest the world will not achieve SDG 4

Aggregating the benchmark values either that countries have submitted or that have been extracted from their national plans provides the first full picture of whether the SDG 4 pledges are likely to be achieved. The main conclusion is that even if countries manage to achieve their voluntarily set benchmarks, they still fall short of the SDG 4 target pledges, even before taking the potential impact of COVID-19 into account.
