The sustainable development goals (SDGs) are a new, universal set of goals, targets and indicators that UN member states will use to frame their development agendas and political policies over the next 15 years. On September 25th 2015, countries adopted SDGs to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all as part of a new sustainable development agenda. The commitment to “leave no-one behind” is a key feature of the SDGs. The goals are not considered to have been met if those who are most vulnerable and hard to reach are not included.
