The 2030 Agenda in Action – What does it mean?

Dec 4, 2018

The 2030 Agenda and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) was adopted in 2015 by all countries of the United Nations. It is often called a radical plan for humanity and a new way of ‘doing’ development. But what do we mean by that? This explainer leaflet shows what is new about the SDGs, what moving away from ‘business as usual’ of doing development implies, and how UNDP is helping countries to make the 2030 Agenda a reality.
