Agenda 2030 is the new UN development agenda consisting of 17 global goals with a total of 169 sub-goals. The global targets and Agenda 2030 are aimed at eradicating poverty and hunger, the realisation of human rights for all, achieving equality and empowerment for all women and girls, and to ensure a long-term protection of the planet and its natural resources.
The global targets are integrated and cannot be separated and balance the three dimensions of sustainable development: the economic, the social and the environmental. The goals concern all, countries as well as organisations, companies and individuals.
The global goals for sustainable development replace the millennium goals, which among other things means that environment and development are no longer treated as two separate matters. The process of drawing up the new objectives has been open and inclusive with the participation of large elements of the international civil society and has been developed by different working groups, researchers and organisations.
The three dimensions of sustainable development - the social, economic and environmental - are integrated into the global goals. All countries in the world shall work to achieve the objectives, and it is the responsibility of respective governments to ensure that goals are achieved in their own countries. The targets should be reached by 2030. (Sources to the above are fn.se and regeringen.se)
