The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a set of universal goals and targets that call upon people, governments and the private sector to work towards ending poverty, protecting the planet and ensuring peace and prosperity for everyone in this world. They are also called Global Goals and are based on the success achieved with the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) that ended in 2015. Created by the United Nations, the 17 goals envisaged came into effect in 2016 and the target time period to achieve them is 15 years. They were adopted by a UN General Assembly on 25th September 2015 and are non-binding on the members. The 17 goals are further divided into 169 targets. The SDG framework does not separate developed and developing nations and the goals are common for all. The SDGs are officially known as “Transforming our World: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development” or simply the 2030 Agenda. They cover a wide range of social, economic, environmental and developmental issues. The 17 goals cover various aspects like poverty, hunger, employment, education, equality, gender, environment, clean energy, industry, innovation, etc.
