“We are the first generation that can end poverty, the last that can end climate change”.
These are the words of the UN Secretary General in 2015.
This was the year that the UN launched their 17 Sustainability Development Goals that are to be achieved by 2030. The attached document lists all 17.
However the 17 goals are better understood by re-arranging them under the 5Ps headings.
No poverty – Goal1
Zero hunger – Goal 2
Good Health and Wellbeing – Goal 3
Quality Education – Goal 4
Gender Equality – Goal 5
Clean Water and Sanitisation – Goal 6
Climate Action – Goal13
Life below Water – Goal14
Life on Land – Goal 15
Affordable Clean Energy – Goal 7
Decent Work and Economic Development – Goal 8
Industry Innovation and Infrastructure – Goal 9
Reduce Inequalities – Goal10
Sustainable Cities and Communities – Goal 11
Responsible Consumption and Production – Goal 12
Peace Justice and strong Institutions – Goal 16
Partnerships for the Goals – Goal 17
Each Goal has a set of targets to be achieved by 2030. For example end hunger and ensure access by all people, particularly the poor and people in vulnerable situations, like infants, to safe nutritious and sufficient food all year round
