UN 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

In September 2015, UN Member States adopted the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda, an ambitious agenda designed to put the world on a pathway to sustainability within the next 15 years. Of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) about half have a strong environmental focus or address the sustainability of natural resources: poverty, health, food and agriculture, water and sanitation, human settlements, energy, climate change, sustainable consumption and production, oceans, and terrestrial ecosystems.

UNEP is committed to working towards an integrated implementation of the 17 SDGs and to support regions and countries in mainstreaming the environmental dimension into their development ambitions and help them build capacity.
