The UN Sustainable Development Goals

Building off the results of the Millennium Development Goals, the members of the UN General Assembly united in September 2015 to adopt seventeen new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These goals include ending extreme poverty in our time and combating climate change and its impacts. Starting this month, these Global Goals kick in, and member states move toward implementing them over the next 15 years.
