Armenia ranked 75th in the Sustainable development report 2020 with an index of 66.9. According to a published document, the report assesses the commitment of 166 countries to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

In accordance with the key principle of "leaving no  one behind", the agenda provides a holistic approach to achieving  sustainable development for the entire planet now and in the future.
