Global Goals (SDG) Fact Sheet series

 

 

What is the Global Goals (SDG)?

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015 to end poverty, reduce inequality and build more peaceful, prosperous societies by 2030. Also known as the Global Goals, the SDGs are a call to action to create a world where no one is left behind.

 

The SDGs cannot be achieved without the realization of child rights. As world leaders work to deliver on the 2030 promise, children around the globe are standing up to secure their right to good health, quality education, a clean planet and more. The leaders of tomorrow, children’s ability to protect the future for us all depends on what we do to secure their rights today.

 

On 25 September 2015, 193 world leaders committed to 17 Global Goals to achieve 3 extraordinary things in the next 15 years. The 3 extraordinary things are:

  1. End extreme poverty;

  2. Fight inequality & injustice;

  3. Fix climate change.

 

The world leaders have renewed their commitment to children’s rights in the context of implementing the SDGs. UNICEF works with governments, partners and other UN agencies to help countries ensure the goals deliver results for and with every child – now and for generations to come.
