Sustainable Development Goals

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all UN Members in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future.

At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries in a global partnership.

They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.

The SDGs InfoRepository presents a broad range of information on activities that the Global Development Research Center (GDRC) is undertaking in order to better understand the goals and develop solutions for the various global problems and challenges that we face today. The targets and their respective indicators provide an insight into the priorities and policy solutions that countries will be looking at over the next decades.

Millennium Development Goals(MDGs)

During 2005-2015, the United Nations, its agencies and the world community undertook to implement eight development goals, collectively called as the MDGs. These goals were a precursor to the SDGs and dealt with eight themes - poverty, education, gender equality, child mortality, health, HIV/AIDS, environment, and global partnerships.
