Introducing the Sustainable Development Goals
At a United Nations summit in September 2015, countries adopted a new development agenda, of which the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a core part. The SDGs build on and extend the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), which expired at the end of 2015. There are 17 SDGs with over 160 accompanying targets that aim to holistically address sustainable development over the 2016–2030 period.
