In 2015, world leaders from 193 countries agreed on the Sustainable Development
Goals, or SDGs, as the world's new action plan for the next 15 years to end extreme
poverty and hunger, fight inequality, combat climate change, and achieve sustainable
development for all.
So, what are these goals for? They are made to work towards the goal of 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, reducing inequalities, sustainable cities and
communities, responsible consumption and production, climate action, life below water,
life on land, peace, justice, and strong organizations, and lastly, partnerships for the
The SDGs apply to everyone. They are relevant to all countries, rich and poor,
developed and developing. They recognize that global challenges such as combating
climate change and shifting development models necessitate global solutions. Domestic
policies addressing these issues in one country will have an impact on other parts of the
world, so we must work together.
According to the SDGs, we must leave no one behind. Governments have agreed that
no goal should be met unless it is met for everyone, including the most vulnerable and
difficult to reach members of society. As a result, education must reach indigenous
communities, jobs must be created for both men and women, quality health care must
be available in all rural communities, and people with disabilities must have access to
water and sanitation facilities.
I believe that the main objective of the United Nations' 17 Sustainable Development
Goals is to achieve human development. In a greater sense, wherever we are and
whatever we do, we have the ability and power to do what we want to do and be who
we want to be.
