Alcohol and Agenda 2030

Efforts to prevent alcohol problems contributes to the achievement of 14 of the 17 global goals. Without action, alcohol can hinder a positive development.

The goals of Agenda 2030 are integrated and indivisible. No goal can be achieved at the expense of another and many of the goals depend on progress in other goal areas. It is also possible to identify risk factors that can have a negative impact on many of the goals - alcohol is one such risk factor.
