History & Evolution of Agenda 2030

History & Evolution

As the 2030 Agenda came into effect on January 1, 2016, since then we all aim to increase prosperity, social inclusion, and environmental sustainability in our locality and society by following Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) framework. However, many people are not aware about SDGs and how to implement this complex and ambitious agenda. There is tremendous potential as well as urgency to achieve Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). However, there is a need for a simple framework which can help individuals and institutions in understanding and implementing the SDGs as well as measuring the progress and identifying more effective ways to implement them and to communicate the results to the world. 

The development of Agenda 2030 or Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Agenda was spearheaded by the United Nations, the largest international organisation which helps solve the problems that affect all of us. Almost all the States in the world are members of the United Nations. The United Nations adopted a historic resolution committing themselves to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The Agenda contains 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 169 targets, seeking to build on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) that ended in 2015.

The SDGs are aimed at balancing economic growth, social development and environmental protection. The Agenda is driven by the principle of leaving no one behind. It is rooted in universal human rights principles and standards. It is an integrated plan of action structured in four main parts i.e.,

  • Declaration of Agenda 2030
  • SDGs & Targets
  • Implementation of SDGs & 
  • Follow-up & Review
