Sustainable development goals

Seventeen goals to save the world

The Sustainable Development Goals are a plan to achieve a better, more sustainable future for all. These goals address the global challenges we face, including challenges related to poverty, inequality, climate and environmental degradation, prosperity, peace and justice. The goals are interconnected, and to ensure that no one is left behind, it is important to achieve each goal by 2030.

Our recovery framework

COVID-19 is causing human suffering, destabilizing the global economy, and upending the lives of billions of people around the world.

This is the time for change, to make deep systemic shifts towards a more sustainable economy that works for people and planet.Read about the necessity of the Sustainable Development Goals for a recovery that leads to greener, more inclusive economies and stronger, more resilient societies.
