Sustainable Development Goals

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are the global goals for sustainable development that were adopted by the United Nations (UN) in January 2016. These 17 global goals encompass 169 targets and continue the agenda set by the UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). The aim of the strategy is to tackle and resolve global environmental, economic and societal challenges such as climate change, inequality and poverty by 2030.
