These include the delivery of social protection and essential public services for all; scaling up efforts to end hunger and malnutrition; establishing a forum to bridge the infrastructure gap; promoting inclusive and sustainable industrialization; generating full and productive employment and decent work for all; protecting ecosystems; promoting peaceful and inclusive societies; gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls; children and youth; countries in special situations; and the global partnership for sustainable development.
