SUMMARY

Keeping sustainable development at the core of UN 2015meeting, 170 countries decided to resolve the issues faced by them currently. As a starting point, it was recognized that eradicating extreme poverty is an indispensable requirement for Sustainable development. An urgent need to shift the world on to a sustainable path was recognized. All countries will partner to collaborate and implement this plan.

Thereby 17 Goals and 169 targets were set for the world to achieve. These goals and targets are to stimulate action on this path. These goals will balance the 3 dimensions of sustainable development: economic, social and environmental. The goals came into effect on 1 January 2016, to guide their decisions for next 15 years. The goals are a result of over 2 years of public consultations, valuable work of Open Working Group of the General Assembly on sustainable development goals and a UN report provided in December2014.

The heads of member countries pledged to creating:

·      A world in which consumption and production patterns and use of all natural resources are sustainable.

·      A democratic world which is governed well by rule of law, having inclusive economic growth, social development, protected environment thereby eradicating poverty and hunger.

·      Real world where development and application of technology are climate-sensitive as well as show respect for biodiversity and resilience.

·      Last but not the least, a world having harmony between humans and nature while protecting wildlife and other living species on the surface of earth or in the depth of its oceans.
