By 2030 SDG 9, Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure, aims to build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization, and foster innovation. This includes increasing investments in research and development (R&D) and manufacturing, and upgrading our infrastructure in all sectors including transport and energy. It also means ensuring businesses and entrepreneurs have access to financial services and markets, and that everyone has access to affordable and reliable broadband internet and other information and communication technology. In 2020, state governments spent over $2 billion on R&D, 45% of which went to health-related projects compared to 19% for natural resources and 11% for transportation projects. The United Nations has defined 8 Targets and 12 Indicators to track progress towards reaching the Sustainable Development Goal of Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure by 2030. The data below takes a look at key indicators in the U.S. related to internet access, road infrastructure, R&D spending, and more through the lens of government and social sector data.
