Human rights for sustainable development

October 1, 2023

Human rights are a necessary foundation for a peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world. Human rights are central to UNDP support to countries to implement and achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals as well as other commitments agreed by Member States. Over 90 percent of SDG targets overlap with human rights obligations in the normative framework and Agenda 2030 envisions a world ‘of universal respect for human rights and human dignity’ where using a human rights-based approach no one is left behind in development progress.
