What are the Sustainable Development Goals?
The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are an ambitious set of targets adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015 that provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future.
They cover a range of areas from poverty eradication, reducing inequality, economic growth, access to education services to environmental protection.
These goals represent the interdependency of our ecosystem and it reflects the reality that an action in one area will affect outcomes in another area.
Lead by the Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment, with a whole-of-government approach, Ireland has taken on the responsibility for promoting and overseeing national implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and these goals.
