Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)



With the aim of taking forward the success of Millennium Development Goals, the United Nations (UN) General Assembly, in its 70th Session held on 25th September 2015, adopted the framework titled "Transforming our World: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development". This agenda is a plan of action for people, planet and prosperity. It also seeks to strengthen universal peace in larger freedom. It recognizes that eradicating poverty in all its forms and dimensions, including extreme poverty, is the greatest global challenge and an indispensable requirement for sustainable development.


The agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development is a plan of action focusing on following 5 Ps:  1. People 2.Planet 3.Prosperity 4.Peace 5.Partnership. They are integrated and indivisible and balance the three dimensions of sustainable development: the economic, social and environmental. The 17 SDGs and associated 169 targets came into force with effect from 01st January, 2016.


SDGs are universal (for all nations - developed, developing and least developed), interconnected and indivisible and hence necessitate comprehensive and participatory approaches in bringing everybody together so that “No one left Behind”.
