The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), agreed upon by over 150 countries and set by the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Summit in September 2015, are part of a UN Resolution called the “The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (the 2030 Agenda)”.
The Sustainable Development Goals are set of 17 goals and 169 targets, with the aim of building an inclusive and more sustainable society.
The SDGs cover a wide range of challenges, from poverty and hunger to environmental issues as well as economic growth and gender equality. The Agenda enshrines the Goals to be achieved by the target date of 2030, leaving no one behind.
