In 2015, every country in the world agreed on 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to end poverty, fight against inequalities and injustices, tackle climate change and build a common world by 2030.
These SDGs were adopted on 25 September 2015 in New York, during the United Nations General Assembly, and officially take over from the 8 Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
What is new about them? They are interdependent universal goals which are equally applicable to the USA as they are to Peru or Chad. This vision shared by the whole world on the direction to take for the next 15 years is promising. It calls for the mobilization of everyone: international community, States, NGOs, local authorities, companies and citizens.
We are at the dawn of a new era, in which AFD aims to fully play its role.
