SDGs - The 2030 Agenda 

The global community is working on the implementation of the UN 2030 Agenda with its 17 sustainable development goals and 169 targets which officially came into force on 1 January 2016. The focus of the Poverty-Wellbeing Shareweb is set on SDG 1 'end poverty in all its forms everywhere', which links directly or indirectly to other SDGs. SDG 10 'reduce inequality within and among countries' is specifically addressed under the Current Poverty Issue 'Equality, Equity, Inclusion'.

The 2030 Agenda pledges that 'no one will be left behind' (A/Res/70/1, p. 1). Leave no one behind (LNOB) is seen as the overarching aim of the 2030 Agenda. This page addresses questions about the 2030 Agenda and which are relevant from a poverty perspective.
