The 2030 Development Agenda — and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that it contains — brings a renewed focus on people, planet, prosperity, peace and partnership. These age-old concepts are being recombined to create a brand new DNA that conceives the parallel achievement of social, environmental, and economic development. In so doing, the agenda seeks to overcome some of the greatest challenges of our times: lack of dignity, rising inequalities, threats to health & well-being, natural resource depletion, environmental degradation, and climate change. The SDG framework offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to reshape the face of the earth. We must not falter in delivering on this opportunity.
