Goal 1- End poverty in all its forms everywhere
This goal is a bold commitment to eradicate poverty in all forms and dimensions by 2030. This involves targeting the most vulnerable, increasing access to basic resources and services, and supporting communities affected by conflict and climate - related disasters.
Goal 2- End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) aim to end all forms of hunger and malnutrition by 2030, making sure all people – especially children and the more vulnerable – have access to sufficient and nutritious food all year round. This involves promoting sustainable agricultural practices: improving the livelihoods and capacities of small scale farmers, allowing equal access to land, technology and markets. It also requires international cooperation to ensure investment in infrastructure and technology to improve agricultural productivity.
Goal 3- Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages
SDG 3 aspires to ensure health and well-being for all, including a bold commitment to end the epidemics of AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria and other communicable diseases by 2030. It also aims to achieve universal health coverage, and provide access to safe and effective medicines and vaccines for all. Supporting research and development for vaccines is an essential part of this process as well as expanding access to affordable medicines.
Goal 4- Ensure inclusive and quality education for all and promote lifelong learning.
This goal ensures that all girls and boys complete free primary and secondary schooling by 2030. It also aims to provide equal access to affordable vocational training, and to eliminate gender and wealth disparities with the aim of achieving universal access to a quality higher education.
Goal 5- Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.
Ending all forms of discrimination against women and girls is crucial accelerating sustainable development. Affording women equal rights to economic resources such as land and property are vital targets to realizing this goal. So is ensuring universal access to sexual and reproductive health.

To ensure universal access to safe and affordable drinking water for all by 2030, we need to invest in adequate infrastructure, provide sanitation facilities, and encourage hygiene at every level. Protecting and restoring water - related ecosystems such as forests, mountains, wetlands and rivers is essential ti mitigate water scarcity.
Goal 7- Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all
Ensuring universal access to affordable electricity by 2030 means investing in clean energy sources such as solar, wind and thermal. Adopting cost-effective standards for a wider range of technologies could also reduce the global electricity consumption by buildings and industry by 14 percent. This means avoiding roughly 1,300 mid-size power plants. Expanding infrastructure and upgrading technology to provide clean energy sources in all developing countries is a crucial goal that can both encourage growth and help the environment.
Goal 8- Promote inclusive and sustainable economic growth, employment and decent work for all.
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) aim to encourage sustained economic growth by achieving higher levels of productivity and through technological innovation. Promoting policies that encourage entrepreneurship and job creation are key to this, as are effective measures to eradicate forced labour, slavery and human trafficking. With these targets in mind, the goal is to achieve full and productive employment, and decent work, for all women and men by 2030.
Goal 9- Build resilient infrastructure, promote sustainable industrialization and foster innovation.
This goal aims to promote sustainable industries, and invest in scientific research and innovation to facilitate sustainable development. Technological progress is also key to finding lasting solutions to both economic and environmental challenges, such as providing new jobs and promoting energy efficiency.
Goal 10- Reduce inequality within and among countries
Income inequality is a global problem that requires global solutions. This involves improving the regulation and monitoring of financial markets and institutions, encouraging development assistance and foreign direct investment to regions where the need is greatest. Facilitating the safe migration and mobility of people is also key to bridging the widening divide.
