Sustainable Development Goals

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), also known as the Global Goals, offer a sustainable development agenda and coordinate efforts for people, planet and prosperity.

Driven by the United Nations (UN), 17 Sustainable Development Goals and 169 Target Indicators were adopted at the UN Sustainable Development Summit in 2015.

The SDGs build on the eight Millennium Development Goals (MDG), which guided the global sustainable development priorities from 2000-2015. Climate change, economic inequality, and peace and justice are a few of the new goals on the global development agenda.
