What are the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)?
In September 2015, 193 Member States met at the 70th Session of the United Nation General Assembly and adopted the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), also known as the Global Goals.
The Member States agreed to join efforts for “the future we want” by adopting these 17 goals into a sustainable agenda “of the people, by the people, and for the people” that aims for people around the world to enjoy peace and prosperity without damaging the planet.
