The Sustainable Development Goals (Global Goals)
The Sustainable Development Goals ("Global Goals") succeed the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) but form a more comprehensive, modern and ambitious agenda that responds to the many challenges faced by the world today and into the future. In addition to building on the MDGs, the Global Goals include important new goals on economic growth, infrastructure, peace and effective governance, and oceans.
There are 169 targets within the 17 Global Goals and each goal has a set of indicators to help measure progress. Countries will have the opportunity to deliver Voluntary National Reviews, showcasing progress towards the Global Goals - at home and abroad - when Heads of State and Government and senior Ministers gather at the High Level Political Forum (HLPF) each year.
