Understanding also the trade-offs as well as synergistic relations between the different SDGs is crucial for achieving long-lasting sustainable development outcomes. For example, eradicating poverty (SDG1) cannot be achieved without ensuring food security (SDG2) for all. Increasing agricultural production requires complementary measures that benefit e.g. the income of the poor and vulnerable communities in rural areas and reduce their exposure to adverse environmental shocks also addressed by other SDGs.
When it comes to reporting for various fund portfolio’s we have chosen to only show those SDGs where a direct positive link was found between a fund investment and specific targets and/or indicators set out in the SDGs. Since mid 2020 we built these graphs based on the value at the time of reporting and shown as a percentage of the portfolio. All investments are scrceened and labelled based on below overview. Since 2020 FMO regards all investments as postive contributions to SDG 8 as this represent the core of FMO: sustainable growth and decent work for all. This is not yet represented in below overview. As the fund itself is a partnership contributing to the SDGs, SDG 17 Partnerships for the goals always applies.
