The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), otherwise known as the Global Goals, are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. They tackle the root causes of poverty and unite us together to make a positive change for both people and planet.
The 2030 Agenda and the SDGs apply to all countries of the world. States have the primary responsibility for the implementation of the 2030 Agenda, but attaining the goals requires wide participation from local government, private sector, civil society and citizens, too.
The 2030 Agenda includes 17 different goals that are related to sustainable development. These goals are to be met by 2030.
