Why were the Sustainable Development Goals introduced?
The SDGs aim to build on the success of the Millennium Development Goals (8 x development goals created in 2000 to be achieved by 2015) by covering more ground, with ambitions to address inequalities, economic growth, decent jobs, sustainable cities and human settlements, industrialisation, ecosystems, energy, climate change, and sustainable consumption and production.

How are the Sustainable Development goals implemented?

A core feature of the SDGs is their strong focus on means of implementation – the mobilisation of financial resources – as well as capacity building and technology, data and institutions.

Implementation and success will rely largely on the sustainable development policies, plans and programmes of national governments. However, other stakeholders (e.g. private sector, civil society) are expected to contribute to the realisation of the new agenda.
