· Sustainable Development Goals
The Sustainable Development Goals (also known as the Global Goals) are a call for action by all countries - poor, rich and middle-income-to promote prosperity while protecting the planet and leaving no one behind.
The SDGs recognize ending poverty must go hand-in-hand with strategies that build economic growth and address a range of social needs including education, health, social justice, and job opportunities, while tackling climate change and environmental protection.

“Saving our planet, lifting people out of poverty, advancing economic growth. These are one and the same fight.
We must connect the dots between climate change, water scarcity, energy shortages, global health, food security and women's empowerment. Solutions to one problem must be solutions for all.”
