The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development provides a comprehensive and far-reaching plan for Sustainable Development Goals


Building upon the achievements of the Millennium Development Goals, and seeking to address the existing challenges, in 2015 the United Nations member states agreed on a new agenda for sustainable development. The agenda comprises 17 Sustainable Development Goals and 169 associated targets.
