Millenium Development Goals

In 2000, world leaders committed to the vision to "free our fellow men, women and children from the abject and dehumanising conditions of extreme poverty". This vision was translated into 8 Millenium Development Goals (MDGs) that formed the development framework for the world for the next 15 years. This has been the most successful anti-poverty movement in history, lifting more than one billion people out of extreme poverty. The Millenium Development Goals Report 2015 can be downloaded below. 

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) follow the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and set goals to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all.  The 17 goals and 169 specific targets to be achieved over the next 15 years were adopted on 25th September 2015.  There are two significant changes from the MDGs.  Firstly, the SDGs are designed to apply to all countries, both “developed” and “developing”, so they remind us to look at what we do in Australia as well as overseas (see our Lifestyle Page for more ideas on this).  Secondly, the SDGs aim to not leave anyone out.  Rather than just improve averages, they aim to lift the poorest and most marginalised (for example, women, people with a disability, ethnic minorities and those in conflict zones) out of poverty.

Sustainable Development Goals

On the 25th September 2015, world leaders acopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which includes a set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to end poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and tackle climate change by 2030. These goals build on the Millenium Development Goals (MDGs), which were adopted in 2000 and has been the most successful anti-poverty movement in history. The 17 SDGs aim to end poverty, hunger and inequality, take action on climate change and the environment, improve access to health and education, build strong institutions and partnerships, and more.
