An unprecedented commitment: In 2015, the world made an unprecedented commitment to people, prosperity and the planet. The historic 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, endorsed by over 150 world leaders, aims to end all forms of poverty and discrimination. It seeks to transform how we live, where all people enjoy rights and dignity. The 2030 Agenda balances economic growth, social development and environmental protection. And it is universal. Both developed and developing countries must take action to meet its promises by 2030.

The Agenda stipulates 17 Sustainable Development Goals and 169 targets to translate its high ambitions into achievable actions. Reaching these Goals and the 2030 Agenda as a whole depends significantly on the work of UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund.
