SDG Knowledge


On 25 September 2015, the United Nations General Assembly formally adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, along with a set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals and 169 associated targets.

Building upon the success of the Millennium Development Goals, this new development agenda is the international community’s primary guide for sustainable development in the years to come. Like never before, the sustainability aspects of development are considered of primary concern at local, national, regional and international levels.

UN DESA’s divisions engage stakeholders around the world in the implementation, evaluation and monitoring process of the Sustainable Development Goals, and assist countries in translating global goals into national policies, and national policies into action on the ground.
