The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are presented as highly connected: an ‘interrelated’ and ‘indivisible’ agenda with need of policy coherence for implementation. We analyse the relationships among SDGs using formal systems analysis and find that the connections between Goals are uneven, with a failure to integrate gender equality, and peace and governance concerns. This incoherence may undermine policy initiatives aimed to develop approaches to implement the SDGs.
