The 2030 Development Agenda, adopted unanimously by the 193 United Nations (UN) member countries on September 25, 2015, is a universal call to action for transforming the world to one that is free from poverty, inequality, violence, manmade natural disasters, and resource depletion for the current and future generations. The 2030 Agenda sets 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 169 associated Targets that represent a broad intergovernmental consensus on the world’s development priorities. The Goals were set through a participative process led by the UN, which included states, companies, civil society organizations, scientists, and experts over a period of 3 years. “Commitment to universal human rights” is depicted as the overarching normative and ethical framework for the SDGs.
