Global Goals for Sustainable Development


Sustainable development can be defined as development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. It is the organizing principle for achieving the Global Goals while simultaneously sustaining the ability of natural systems to provide the resources & ecosystem services based upon which the economy & society depend. The desired result is a state of society where living conditions & resources meet human needs without undermining the integrity & stability of the natural system.

In 2015, world leaders agreed to 17 goals for a better world by 2030. These goals have the power to end poverty, fight inequality & address the urgency of climate change. Guided by the goals, it is now up to all of us, governments, businesses, civil society & the general public to work together to build a better future for everyone. — United Nations
