Sweden is placed at the top of the index with an overall score of 84.7 while Bangladesh has a score of 63.5.

    The report shows that among 17 SDG parameters, Bangladesh has remained on track in achieving goals relating to poverty alleviation, quality education, decent work and economic growth and climate action.
