In September 2015, one hundred and ninety-five UN Member States adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development titled “Transforming our World”. The seventeen Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are the centrepiece of the 2030 Agenda. They reflect Economic, Social and Environmental dimensions of sustainable development.
