UN Agenda 2030 for sustainable development – ‘the future we want ‘

‘Agenda2030’ was the name given to the commitment made by heads of State and Government and senior representatives, gathered, from September 25th to 27th 2015, at the headquarters of the United Nations (UN) in New York. On that occasion, in which the UN celebrated 70 years of existence, it was being set a new global development agenda post-2015, the year that marked the end of the deadline for achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

Agenda 2030 consists of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (ODS) and corresponding 169 targets ( and it proposes means of implementation that will allow the achievement of these goals and its targets.

According to the document, although the MDGs have provided an important framework for development and have resulted in significant progress in several areas, there was no equality in the processes and many countries, especially the least developed among them, were not reaching desired levels. The new Agenda, therefore, intends to complete what was not achieved and benefit, particularly the neediest populations.

The Signatories recognize that undertaking compliance with the Agenda requires a revitalized global partnership. They also reaffirm the need to work in a spirit of global solidarity, in particular solidarity with the poor and with people in vulnerable situations. The idea is that the implementation of all the Goals and targets will only be possible if Governments, the private sector, civil society, the United Nations system and other actors work in partnership in order to mobilize all available resources. The commitment also highlights that each country is the main responsible for its own economic and social development, and the more developed, among other things, should make an effort to mobilize financial resources, as well as to develop capabilities and provide the transfering, in favourable conditions, of environmentally appropriate technologies to poorer countries.
