Introduction to Sustainable Development Goals (SDG)

MIRI CITY COUNCIL SDG

“We Will Achieve the Sustainable Development Goals 2030 In Miri City”


INTRODUCTION

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a universal set of goals, targets and indicators that UN member states have committed to use to frame both domestic and international development policies over the next 15 years. They build upon the progress of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), which were agreed by governments in 2001 and expired in 2015. While the MDGs focused on reducing extreme poverty in all its forms, the SDGs pursue a broader agenda that encompasses the social, environmental and economic aspects of sustainable development, which is relevant for all countries worldwide.

While the MDGs focused on reducing extreme poverty in all its forms, the SDGs pursue a broader agenda that encompasses the social, environmental and economic aspects of sustainable development, which is relevant for all countries worldwide.

The SDGs are at the core of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which was ratified by all UN member states at the 2015 United Nations General Assembly. Their 17 goals and 169 targets address critical issues facing the world today, including the eradication of extreme poverty, tackling global inequality and climate change, promoting sustainable urbanization and industrial development, protecting natural ecosystems, and fostering the growth of peaceful and inclusive communities and governing institutions. A set of 231 indicators has also been developed to measure progress on SDG goals and targets, within and across countries.
