What are the Global Goals?
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a UN-sponsored 15-year framework for achieving global development and sustainability goals by the year 2030.
The 17 SDGs (a.k.a. “Agenda 2030”) were adopted in 2015 by the UN General Assembly, succeeding the eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) set in 2000.
The MDGs and SDGs are the product of several decades of UN-led dialogues on coordinated global efforts to address the most pressing environmental social, and economic challenges facing the world community.
