About the SDGs
In 2015, 193 UN member states committed to 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to help us all end extreme poverty, fight inequality & injustice, and fix climate change.
Together, the Goals represent the world’s first comprehensive blueprint for a better, more prosperous, sustainable future for all.
Unlike the Millennium Development Goals which preceded them, the SDGs were designed to apply in all countries – including developed ones like the UK. They also recognise the roles of different sectors in achieving the agenda and call on a new commitment for global partnerships for sustainable development.
