Sustainable Development Goals
The Sustainable Development Goals, also known as the Global Goals, is a series of 17 goals that the world has agreed to come together to end poverty, combat climate change and ensure that we leave peaceful, just, and equal societies for future generations, all by 2030.
These goals tackle challenging areas such as poverty, education, human rights, food security, clean energy, climate, peace, sustainable consumption and urbanization. They are a set of universal guidelines - a world wide plan of action - for all countries to adopt in accordance with their own values and priorities.
Never before has the world come together to agree on such a comprehensive agenda. The goals are ambitious, but they are attainable. Success in delivering on the goals, which will require the partnership of governments, private sector, civil society and citizens alike, has the potential to be one of the most important turning points in modern history.
