The Sustainable Development Goals
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were defined by the United Nations in 2015 in order to guide the way forward to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all.
These 17 goals cover the challenges with which we are confronted today: poverty, inequalities, climate changes and environmental degradation, prosperity, peace and justice.
They supersede and expand upon the Millennium Development Goals, adopted in September 2000.
The implementation of the SDGs is part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by the 193 United Nations Member States in September 2015. The five priorities of this agenda are people, the planet, prosperity, peace and partnerships.
