Sustainable Development Goals officially adopted by 193 Countries at the Sustainable Development Summit

September 27, New York

The Sustainable Development Summit was held from 25-27 September at UN Headquarters in New York. Countries officially adopted the historic new agenda, entitled “Transforming Our World: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development,” which was agreed upon by the 193 Member States of the United Nations, and includes 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
 

“It is a roadmap to ending global poverty, building a life of dignity for all and leaving no one behind. It is also a clarion call to work in partnership and intensify efforts to share prosperity, empower people’s livelihoods, ensure peace and heal our planet for the benefit of this and future generations,” underscored UN Secretary-General Mr. Ban Ki-moon.
 

Speaking at the closing press briefing, Amina J. Mohammed, the UN Secretary-General’s Special Advisor for Post-2015 Development Planning emphasized that implementation will be the litmus test of the Agenda and welcomed the new commitments made at the Summit across member states, businesses, civil society and international organizations that will support action on the 17 new Sustainable Development Goals.
 

The announcements, in the form of financial and partnership assistance, will kick-start action for the Agenda, which will run until 2030. They targeted many areas for action, including poverty, health, climate change, institution building, gender equality and women’s empowerment; with several commitments grounded in an integrated cross-sectorial approach.
 

The new agenda is people-centered, universal, transformative and integrated. It calls for action by all countries for all people over the next 15 years in five areas of critical importance: people, planet, prosperity, peace and partnership. The agenda recognizes that ending poverty must go hand-in-hand with a plan that builds economic growth and addresses a range of social needs, while tackling climate change.
