The UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development sets out 17 goals and 169 underlying targets, providing a blueprint for shared prosperity in a sustainable world — one where everyone can live productive and peaceful lives. The goals call for action by all countries to promote prosperity while protecting the natural environment, and have been adopted by all UN member states.
