Sustainable Development Goals

September is here and its time for the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit. The annual September meeting at the UN is significant this year as we are expected to adopt the Sustainable Development goals.UNSDS

This follows the end of Millennium Development Goals that were set in 2000 to be achieved before 2015. Though not all of the 8 goals are a success, but the MDG has been a success story throughout the globe.

The proceedings of this year’s UN meet will be started by the Pope. Pope Francis has been a great patron of climate change. (Read his encyclical here).  The summit is expected to be a launch pad for global action until 2030.

The three main themes of the SDG are

  • End extreme poverty
  • Fight inequality and injustice
  • Fix climate change


The Complete list of the 17 SDGs can be found here.
