This booklet provides a brief introduction to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) aim to end poverty and hunger by 2030. World leaders, recognizing the con- nection between people and planet, have set goals for the land, the oceans and the waterways. That future is one where everybody has enough food, and can work, and where living on less than $1.25 a day is a thing of the past. UNDP is proud to be a leader in this global movement.
