    Sustainable Development Goals

    The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), also known as the Global Goals, are a global initiative to end poverty, protect the environment, reduce economic inequality and ensure peace and justice for all.

    These 17 Goals build on the successes of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) which ended in 2015. Unlike the MDGs, the SDG framework does not distinguish between "developed" and "developing" nations. Instead, the goals apply to all countries. These goals are interconnected and based on the principle of “leaving no one behind”. There are 169 targets for the 17 goals.

    On 25 September 2015, the 193 countries of the UN General Assembly adopted the 2030 development agenda for Sustainable Development.
