Sustainable Development Goals

Creating Global Progress

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs or Global Goals) are the newest worldwide guidelines that will define the next 15 years of common actions towards ending poverty, fighting inequality and injustice, and tackling climate change.

They became reality in September 2015 when world leaders adopted the Post-2015 Development Agenda, which included a list of 17 universal goals and 169 targets. The SDGs entered into effect on the first of January 2016 and were formulated to build upon the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

Each goal below links to any work that CAF America and our donors have done to further progress on that goal or to the U.N.’s explanation.
