Post 26- For my previous post on
, I am getting questions from few of the readers asking - what is SDG . The reply is below:
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), also known as the Global Goals, were adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030.
The 17 SDGs are integrated—that is, they recognize that action in one area will affect outcomes in others. For Agra city where I live has also its own sustainable development goals framed within these 17 goals and were presented by commissioner Agra Division in SPHEEHA seminar last year. We also can help in achieving these goals as individuals / communities .
