Bringing value to life
Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provide clear focus for development and research projects.
Sustainable Development Goals for all countries
The resolution describes the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and targets that will stimulate action over the next 15 years in areas of critical importance for humanity and the planet around the following five focus points:
People: We are determined to end poverty and hunger, in all their forms and dimensions, and to ensure that all human beings can fulfil their potential in dignity and equality and in a healthy environment.
Planet: We are determined to protect the planet from degradation, including through sustainable consumption and production, sustainably managing its natural resources and taking urgent action on climate change, so that it can support the needs of the present and future generations.
Prosperity: We are determined to ensure that all human beings can enjoy prosperous and fulfilling lives and that economic, social and technological progress occurs in harmony with nature.
Peace: We are determined to foster peaceful, just and inclusive societies which are free from fear and violence. There can be no sustainable development without peace and no peace without sustainable development.
Partnership: We are determined to mobilize the means required to implement this Agenda through a revitalized Global Partnership for Sustainable Development, based on a spirit of strengthened global solidarity, focused in particular on the needs of the poorest and most vulnerable and with the participation of all countries, all stakeholders and all people.
The 17 SDGs offer an explicitly universal framework that reflects the linkages between economic, social and environmental issues, and emphasises the interdependence of individual states. This calls for a new, and renewed, global effort of cooperation, collaboration and meaningful partnership that cuts across national boundaries, stakeholders and sectors. The success of this new development agenda will require policy coherence at all levels and a refusal to work in siloes.
The inter-linkages and integrated nature of the SDGs are of crucial importance in ensuring that the purpose of the new Agenda is realized, with DevSAT an oversight is easily obtained.
Since September 25th 2015, countries have the opportunity to adopt a set of goals to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all as part of a new sustainable development agenda. Each goal has specific targets to be achieved over the next 15 years.
For the goals to be reached, everyone needs to do their part: governments, the private sector, civil society and people like you.
