The UN Sustainable Development Goals

The UN has developed 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for a better future for all

Targets and Indicators

The UN adopted 169 targets and indicators for these 17 SDGs, and organizations in the U.S. and around the world are implementing thousands of diverse strategies to achieve them.

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.

Ban Ki-moon, former UN Secretary General
