Sustainable Development Goals


New Era of Sustainable Development

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were formally launched at the UN Sustainable Development Summit which was held from the 25 to the 27 of September 2015 in New York.

The new 2030 Agenda is people-centred, 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 new agenda, entitled “Transforming Our World: 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development” consists of a Declaration, 17 Sustainable Development Goals and 169 targets, a section on means of implementation and renewed global partnership, and a framework for review and follow-up. It 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.



Unprecedented
consensus

Having received world-wide support from civil society, business, parliamentarians and other actors, the SDGs represent an unprecedented agreement around sustainable development priorities among 193 Member States. With the shared global goals and targets, countries will tailor them and implement policies at the country level.


Role of China

Building on its commitment to the MDGs, China attaches the highest importance to the new 2030 Agenda. National stakeholders have contributed to the preparation process in a substantive manner and several commitments have already been made to put the new development agenda into action. Speaking at the UN General Assembly, China’s President Xi also urged the commitment of other countries to the 2030 Agenda.
