In 2015, countries adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 Sustainable Development  Goals. In 2016, the Paris Agreement on climate change entered into force, addressing the need to limit the rise of global temperatures.

The Sustainable Development Goals are a call for action by all countries – poor, rich and middle-income – to promote prosperity while protecting the planet. They recognise that ending poverty must go hand-in-hand with strategies that build economic growth and address a range of social needs including education, health, social protection, and job opportunities, while tackling climate change and environmental protection.

A blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all, the SDGs address the global challenges we face.
