SDG 9 pertains to improving living standards through industrial development, sustainable infrastructure, and innovation. This chapter will include a discussion about the progress made toward SDG 9, as reported in the Secretary-General's Progress Towards the Sustainable Goals report (UNESC, 2019). Commentary is included in regard to the effects of COVID-19 on SDG 9. Secondly, the potential for measurement of the SDG 9 indicators related to sport will be addressed. There has been limited consideration of SDG 9 in the sporting world, in contrast to some of the other sustainability goals, and thus, a discussion will include suggested opportunities for making these connections. The final section will be focused upon the challenges of implementing and measuring SDG-9 within the sporting context.
