At the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit on 25 September 2015, world leaders adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which includes a set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to end poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and tackle climate change by 2030.

Leading on from the Millennium Development Goals (http://www.un.org/millenniumgoals/) and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (http://www.un.org/sustainabledevelopment/development-agenda/) the following 17 SDGs were drawn up under leadership of the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

Within these 17 goals there are 169 targets (summarised below). A time frame has been set to achieve these goals by 2030.

One Response to “Sustainable Development Goals”

    Concern is growing that the global inequalities may be holding
    back progress as we reach the 3yr anniversary of adoption.
