The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), also known as Global Goals, are a universal appeal to take action in order to end poverty, protect the planet and guarantee that everyone enjoy peace and prosperity.
These 17 Goals are based on the achievements from the Millennium Development Goals, although they include new areas such as climate change, economic inequality, innovation, sustainable consumption, peace and justice, among other priorities. The Goals are interrelated. Frequently, the success of one goal highly depends on the other goals.
The SDGs have a spirit of collaboration and pragmatism to choose the best options in order to improve life, in a sustainable way, for future generations. They provide guidance and clear goals for their adoption in all countries in accordance with their own priorities and the environmental challenges of the world in general.
The SDGs are an inclusive agenda. They address the fundamental causes for poverty and bring us together to make a positive change for the benefit of people and the planet.
