The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are the world’s shared plan to end extreme poverty, reduce inequality, and protect the planet by 2030.
Adopted by 193 countries in 2015, the SDGs emerged from the most inclusive and comprehensive negotiations in UN history and have inspired people from across sectors, geographies, and cultures. Achieving the goals by 2030 will require heroic and imaginative effort, determination to learn about what works, and agility to adapt to new information and changing trends.
The UN Foundation focuses on ideas and initiatives that generate a larger impact, advance the SDG imperative to “leave no one behind,” and are backed by evidence, practical commitments, and action.
Individuals, innovations, and actions are helping the planet realize the potential and promise of the SDGs.
