United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

The Mauritius Post issued on 9 May 2016 a new Rs 27 postage stamp on the theme of The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

On 25 September 2015, 193 members of the United Nations General Assembly formally adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, along with a set of bold new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon hailed as a universal, integrated and transformative vision for a better world.

This agenda, with its 17 SDGs and underpinning 169 targets, emerges from over three years of unprecedented consultations. There is widespread recognition of the need for a more active participation of different stakeholders in the national implementation and monitoring of the SDGs.

This agenda is a call for global action for the people, prosperity and the planet and also calls for peace and justice and for a renewed global partnership to guide development actions in the next 15 years to eradicate poverty and advance human development, while respecting the natural boundaries of our planet.

While the Millenium Development Goals (2000-2015) were devised for developing countries only, the SDGs are universal; countries, rich and poor have committed to leave no one behind and to grow sustainably, within the natural boundaries of our planet.

What are these goals?
1. End poverty in all its forms everywhere

2. End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture

3. Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages

4. Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all

5. Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls

6. Ensure availability and sustainability of water and sanitation for all

7. Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all

8. Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all

9.Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialisation and foster innovation

10. Reduce inequalities within and among countries

11. Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable

12. Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns

13. Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts

14. Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development

15. Protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss

16. Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels

17. Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalise the global partnership for sustainable development
