In the year 2015, leaders from 193 countries of the world came together to face the future. They created a plan called the Sustainable
Development Goals (SDGs). This set of 17 goals imagines a future just 15 years
off that would be rid of poverty and hunger, and safe from the worst effects of
climate change. It’s an ambitious plan.
This Agenda is a plan of action for people, planet and prosperity. It also seeks to strengthen universal peace in larger freedom. We recognize that eradicating poverty in all its forms and dimensions, including extreme poverty, is the greatest global challenge and an indispensable requirement for sustainable development.
