What are the Sustainable Development Goals?

Objectives of Sustainable Development, also known as Global Goals, are a universal call to action against poverty, protection of the planet and to ensure that all people have peace and prosperity. These 17 goals were inspired by the success of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), including new issues such as global climate change, economic inequality, innovation, sustainable consumption, peace and justice, among other priorities. The goals are interconnected - the success of an ODS involves answering issues that are associated with other goals.

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and its goals are global in nature and universally applicable, taking into account different national circumstances, capacities and levels of development, respecting national policies and priorities. The ODS are the result of a transparent, inclusive and participatory process, which lasted three years, enovlvendo all stakeholders.

They represent an unprecedented agreement on the sustainable development priorities among the 193 member states of the UN. They have received support from global civil society, the private sector, parliamentarians and other stakeholders engaged in the sustainable development agenda. The decision to launch a process for defining a set of ODS was made by the Member States of the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio + 20), held in the city of Rio de Janeiro in June 2012.

The ODS entered into force on January 1, 2016 and it is expected that their goals are met by December 31, 2030. However, there is the expectation that some goals, based on international agreements, it fulfilled before the deadline.
