The Sustainable Development Goals

The Global Goals

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a set of 17 global objectives established by the United Nations in 2015 as part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. These goals aim to address a wide range of global challenges, including poverty, hunger, health, education, equality, clean water, and climate change. The SDGs build on the success of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and are designed to be more comprehensive and inclusive.

Global Cooperation and Interconnectedness

The SDGs are universal, applying to all countries regardless of their development status, reflecting the idea that sustainable development requires global cooperation. They emphasize the interconnectedness of social, economic, and environmental sustainability, recognizing that progress in one area often depends on progress in others.
United for Sustainable Progress

Developed through extensive consultations with governments, civil society, businesses, and other stakeholders, the SDGs highlight the importance of partnerships and cooperation. Achieving these goals requires efforts from all sectors of society, including policy-making by governments, innovation and investment by businesses, and advocacy by individuals and non-profits.

Overall, the SDGs provide a comprehensive framework for creating a sustainable and equitable future, where economic growth is inclusive, societies are resilient, and the environment is protected for future generations.
