What are the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)?
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted internationally through the United Nations, provides a blueprint for action and a call to equality and sustainability. Within this blueprint are 17 SDGs. The 17 SDGs cover international issues from poverty to global partnerships. Global leaders observe these SDGs recognising that better work environments and education are needed to eradicate poverty and that the world must address topics such as gender equality to create better economies effectively. All the SDGs are connected, and none of the goals can be met without working towards the other.
The SDGs are based on a shared vision of what world leaders want the world to be like in the future – a future that is secure, sustainable, and based on equality of all peoples both between nations and within nations.
The SDGs apply to every person, of every age, in every community and every country on Earth and were endorsed by all 193 member states of the United Nations in September 2015.
Although every country starts from a different point for each goal, all nations have committed to work towards them. The SDGs are based on a shared vision of what world leaders want the world to be like in the future – a future that is secure, sustainable and based on equality of all peoples both between nations and within nations. The SDGs are based on a belief that no‐one should be left behind. It will not be enough that the average person has had their life improved. The poorest and most vulnerable people must also experience improvement in their lives with a reduction of the disparity between the richest and the poorest people.
