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.
