Understanding the Support the Goals Initiative
The UN Sustainable Development Goals are a set of 17 goals that aim to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. These goals were adopted by all UN member states in 2015 as part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The SDGs cover a range of areas including no poverty, zero hunger, good health and well-being, quality education, gender equality, clean water and sanitation, affordable and clean energy, decent work and economic growth, industry innovation and infrastructure, reduced inequalities, sustainable cities and communities, responsible consumption and production, climate action, life below water, life on land, peace justice and strong institutions, and partnerships for the goals.
