Sustainable Development Goals

In 2015, the UN Member States adopted the Agenda2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that will steer the promotion of sustainable development in 2016–2030. They aim at the eradication of extreme poverty from the world and at ensuring wellbeing in an environmentally sustainable manner.

The Agenda2030 and the SDGs apply to all countries of the world. States have the primary responsibility for the implementation of the Agenda2030, but attaining the goals requires wide participation from local government, private sector, civil society and citizens, too.

The Agenda2030 includes 17 different goals that are related to sustainable development. These goals are to be met by 2030.
