UN Development Goals 2030 set to Replace Millennium Development Goals 2015
The Future We Want, the Rio+20 outcome document set out a mandate to establish an Open Working Group to develop a set of sustainable developments goals (SDGs) for consideration and action by the General Assembly at its 68th session. The sustainable developments goals were to be aligned with and integrated into the UN development agenda beyond 2015.
Here, we list out the new sustainable developments goals to be adopted by the 193 member states of the UN in its next session. The goals are to be achieved by 2030. These new goals will replace the eight Millennium Development Goals which were adopted in 2000 and will expire in 2015.
