2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development

In September 2015, 193 Member States of the United Nations adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, committing to a set of goals that seek to achieve a more sustainable world, and ranging from poverty to governance, from women’s empowerment to environmental sustainability.

The 2030 Agenda pledges to leave no one behind, by trying to reach those who are furthest behind and the most vulnerable. It is meant to apply to all countries – regardless of where a country stands in terms of development – recognizing that challenges related in inequalities, governance, social inclusion, and environmental degradation affect all countries, though in different ways.

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) add to the successes of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), which for the first time, helped to focus attention on the breadth of development challenges facing many countries. The 2030 Agenda, and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, build on key priorities for development gained trhough the Millenium Development Goals (MDGs), while also seeking to address the challenges facing countries that MDGs weren't able to address.

The 2030 Agenda also sets high expectations for all countries' progress in addressing challenges such as poverty, health, education, women's empowerment, growth, inequality, environment protection and governance.

An Agenda for Everyone

The 2030 Agenda is based on an inclusive participatory approach. While the MDGs were agreed upon between governments, the SDGs are the result of a bottom-up process that involved contributions by millions of people from every single country, while also drawing on the inputs of specific segments of society such as youth, women, businesses, civil society, scientists, as well as government partners.
