Overview of the Sustainable development goals (SDGs)
“The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), also known as the Global Goals, were adopted by all
United Nations Member States in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the
planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030. The 17 SDGs are integrated—
that is, they recognize that action in one area will affect outcomes in others, and that development
must balance social, economic and environmental sustainability. SDGs are designed to bring the
world to several life-changing ‘zeros’, including zero poverty, hunger, AIDS and discrimination
against women and girls. Everyone is needed to reach these ambitious targets. The creativity,
knowhow, technology and financial resources from all of society is necessary to achieve the SDGs in
every context.” (United Nations Development Programme, 2020).
