Our contribution to
Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
The Sustainable Development Agenda and its related 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 169 targets were adopted at the 70th Session of the UN General Assembly on 25 September 2015. The SDGs are of global nature and of general application, with a timetable for implementation by 2030. They create implementation commitments for all developed and developing countries, taking into account different national realities, levels of development, national policies and priorities. The 2030 Agenda promotes the integration of all three dimensions of sustainable development – social, environmental and economic – into all sectoral policies while also promoting the interconnection and coherence of the policy and legislative frameworks in connection with the SDGs.
