An Ambitious Plan

In 2015, leaders from 193 countries came together to make a promise. A promise to make the right choices now to improve life for future generations.

The result? An ambitious plan to eradicate poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that all people get a chance to enjoy peace and prosperity.

And to do it all by 2030.

The Global Goals, or Sustainable Development Goals, are a universal call to action to overcome the most pressing challenges facing our world. It’s a historic commitment that covers issues that affect us all, no matter where we live. Most importantly, the Global Goals involve all of us to build a more sustainable, safer, more prosperous planet.

Leading the Way

At UNDP, we’re geared to address development challenges as they actually exist — complex, multi-dimensional and unique to each society. We draw on knowledge gained in all development settings to recognize important differences between countries and regions, as well as respond to shared concerns. As a result, we’re trusted by governments and communities around the world as the partner who can help on the those issues that are key to unlocking  a better future: sustainable human development, climate and disaster resilience, and democratic governance and peacebuilding.

Long story short? We know how to get the job done and we’re leading the way to 2030.
