2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development

In 2015, the member states of the United Nations adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which address all three dimensions of sustainability - social, environmental and economic - form the core of the Agenda. The SDGs are universally applicable and all countries must work together internationally to implement the 17 SDGs by 2030.   

Although the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are to be achieved by 2030, the mid-term review of the 2030 Agenda is worrying: at the current rate of progress, only 18% of the goals will be implemented by 2030. At the same time, for 15% of the goals we observe a concerning reversal of progress.  

Against this backdrop, at this year's SDG Summit, which took place from 18 to 19 September under the umbrella of the UN General Assembly, the international community discussed what measures need to be taken to accelerate the implementation of the 2030 Agenda.

Since the adoption of the 2030 Agenda in 2015, IDOS’ research programmes have accompanied the implementation of the Agenda and advised the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) on how to achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
