In 2016, the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by world leaders came into force.
These goals require action by ALL countries to promote prosperity and protect the planet.
They recognize that ending poverty must go hand in hand with strategies that foster economic growth and that address a variety of social needs, including education, health, social protection and job opportunities, while also addressing issues such as climate change and environmental protection.
