Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

FICS for Achievement of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

On September 25th 2015 leaders from 193 countries gathered at the United Nations in New York to adopt the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. They unanimously agreed to replace the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) with 17 new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), or Global Goals. The SDGs replace the MDGs which in September 2000 rallied the world around a common 15-year agenda to tackle the indignity of poverty. Listed below are the new SDGs that will guide policy and funding for the next 15 years, beginning with a historic pledge to end poverty.
