Creating a Sustainable Future
The United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and their 169 associated targets have been developed to address the full range of social and economic-development issues facing the world.
These include poverty, hunger, health, education, climate change, gender equality, water, sanitation, energy, environment and social justice.
The scale of these issues reflects the urgency of what is at stake. With the world’s population set to exceed 8.5 billion by 2030, growing demands on resources will in turn heighten risks of insecurity, poverty and disadvantage.
