About the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a set of global goals that meet some of the most pressing challenges facing our world today. These 17 Goals are inspired by the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), while including new areas such as climate change, economic inequality, innovation, sustainable consumption, peace and justice, among other priorities. All Goals are interconnected, which means success in one results in success for others. For instance, achieving better health helps eradicate poverty and helps economies prosper. In other words, this is the greatest chance to leave a better world for future generations by 2030 for the world and India.
The SDGs were formed at the UN Conference on Sustainable Development in Rio de Janeiro in 2012. These goals replace the MDGs of 2000 that aimed to tackle extreme poverty and hunger, prevent deadly diseases, and expand primary education to all children, among other development priorities. The MDGs drove progress in several important areas, especially in combating HIV/AIDS and other treatable diseases such as malaria and tuberculosis. The successes of MDGs provided valuable lessons to begin work on the new goals and build a more sustainable, safer, and prosperous planet for all humanity.
India played a significant role in the formulation of SDGs and much of the country’s National Development Agenda is reflected in the SDGs. That is why, the success of SDGs globally largely depends on the success of SDGs in India.
Third Planet Foundation activities and interventions are aligned with Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) guidelines and Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).
