United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

Building a sustainable future

The United Nations (UN) has established 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a roadmap for creating a better future for people and the planet by 2030. It is a call to action for all countries, irrelevant of their level of prosperity.

These global objectives serve as a guide for countries, organizations, and individuals to work collaboratively toward a more sustainable and equitable world. The SDGs address various interconnected challenges, including poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, and peace and justice.
