What are the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals(UNSDG)?

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), also known as the Global Goals, were adopted by all Member States in 2015, as a universal call to action to end poverty, gender inequality, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy healthy, peaceful and prosperous life by 2030. The Goal was formally implemented in January 2016. At its core, it comprises of 17 interconnected Sustainable Development Goals, with 169 targets and 232 indicators.

The SDGs coincided with another historic agreement reached in 2015 at the COP21 Paris Climate Conference. These agreements provide a set of common standards and achievable targets to reduce carbon emissions and manage the risks of climate change.
