Sustainable Development Goals in a nutshell.
The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals are a blueprint to achieve better and more sustainable futures for all. They address global challenges that are interconnected. In order to leave no one behind, it is important to achieve each SDG and their targets by 2030.
The SDG are anchored in the United Nation’s plan for Transforming our World: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
The 2030 Agenda is universal, transformative, and rights-based. It is an ambitious plan of action for all countries, the UN system, and all other actors.
The 2030 Agenda is composed of five pillars: People, Planet, Prosperity, Partnership and Peace.
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development has a Results Framework that includes 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), targets and indicators.
It means that sustainable development is more than the SDGs. But the SDGs assist in measuring progress and guiding stakeholders in taking the right steps towards it.
