The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development was adopted by all UN Member States in 2015. At its heart are 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – an urgent call for action by all countries, both developed and developing, in a global partnership. Ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.
