17 Goals to Transform Our World

Governments, businesses and civil society together with the United Nations have started to mobilize efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Agenda by 2030. Universal, inclusive and indivisible, the Agenda calls for action by all countries to improve the lives of people everywhere.

In 2015, countries adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals. In 2016, the Paris Agreement on climate change entered into force, addressing the need to limit the rise of global temperatures.

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development

The EU made a positive and constructive contribution to the development of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The Millennium Declaration and Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), which expired at the end of 2015, have made an enormous contribution in raising public awareness, increasing political will and mobilising resources for the fight to end poverty.

Indeed some of greatest progress in recent years has been in precisely those where the MDGs have helped to focus attention. For example:

• global poverty has been halved five years ahead of the 2015 timeframe;
• 90% of children in developing regions now enjoy primary education, and
• disparities between boys and girls in enrolment have narrowed.

OECD and the Sustainable Development Goals: Delivering on universal goals and targets

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are broad and ambitious, calling on all countries – be they upper, middle or low income – to make tangible improvements to the lives of their citizens. The goals encompass social, environmental and economic aspects.

The OECD supports the United Nations in ensuring the success of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development by bringing together its existing knowledge, and its unique tools and experience, including:

• a strong track record in policy work with developed and developing countries
• measures and systems for monitoring performance.

In addition, OECD partnerships are creating synergies among private and public, domestic and international, and donor and developing country resources to provide countries with a strong support mechanism on which to build towards a better future.
