Since 2017, EPRs include the review of relevant goals and targets of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and provide recommendations to the countries on the achievement of SDGs (see ECE/CEP/2017/17 ENG, FRE, RUS).

The Eighth Environment for Europe Ministerial Conference (Batumi, 2016) recognized the role that EPRs can play in supporting the achievement and monitoring of SDGs in the pan-European region (see Ministerial Declaration).
