The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

At the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit on 25 September 2015 in New-York, 193 countries adopted a set of 17 goals to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all as part of a new sustainable development agenda. Each goal has specific targets to be achieved over the next 15 years.

These 17 goals - also known as Global Goals - aim to build on the work of the historic Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), that had been established following the Millennium Summit of the United Nations in 2000.

The success of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is the greatest global challenge and even more for the most vulnerable countries, in particular the 48 least developed countries (LDCs).
