What are the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals?
The 17 Sustainable Development Goals are also called SDGs. They represent an urgent call for action by all countries in a global partnership. They recognize that the elimination of poverty and other deprivations must go hand in hand with strategies such as:
- improving health and education
- reduction of inequalities
- the stimulation of economic development
The 17 Sustainable Development Goals link these strategies while addressing climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.
