With just ten years left to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals by the target date of 2030, an ambitious global effort is underway to deliver the promise — by mobilizing more governments, civil society, and businesses and calling on all people to make the Global Goals their own.
The Decade of Action calls for accelerating sustainable solutions to the world’s biggest challenges — ranging from poverty and gender to climate change, inequality and closing the finance gap.
The Decade of Action campaign kicked off on 22 January and will lead up to a new annual event on the Sustainable Development Goals to be held during the high-level week of the General Assembly in September. Drawing on the best data, analytics, innovation and technology, the SDG event is expected to share a snapshot of what’s working and what’s not; where we need to step up; and how we can do so, showcasing the best SDG solutions adopted not just by governments but by the full breadth of SDG stakeholders.
