International Development Efforts
United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
The Millennium Project was initially commissioned by the United Nations Secretary-General in 2002 and provided direction through 2015. Since that time, the United Nations has published the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The new Agenda is guided by the purposes and principles of the Charter of the United Nations, including full respect for international law. It is grounded in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, international human rights treaties, the Millennium Declaration and the 2005 World Summit Outcome Document. It is informed by other instruments such as the Declaration on the Right to Development. We are announcing today 17 Sustainable Development Goals with 169 associated targets which are integrated and indivisible. Never before have world leaders pledged common action and endeavour across such a broad and universal policy agenda. Following are the seventeen (17) Sustainable Development Goals:
These 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) foster in the development efforts to provide a more prosperous future for low, middle, and high income families. This effort is employed at the national level, regional level, and global level to help protect our planet, fight inequalities, and end poverty.
