Accelerating progress on the Sustainable Development Goals

17 Goals to transform our world

This year is the halfway point in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. A global pandemic, conflicts, disasters and other crises have set back progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and reversed human development for the first time in decades.

With the rest of the UN family, UNDP is committed to accelerating action to get the world back on track to achieve the 17 Goals to end extreme poverty, guarantee human rights and secure the environment for all of humanity. Several high-level meetings and events throughout the year culminated in the 2023 SDG Summit during the UN General Assembly in September, where world leaders recommitted to transformative action to achieve the Goals.
