The UN Sustainable Development Goals

About the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals SDGs

When you invest in a partnership with ChildHope you are also investing in a global commitment to tackle the most urgent social, environmental, political and economic challenges facing our world today. You will be joining a network of governments, NGOs, private sector and civil society organisations and citizens who are committed to securing the future and the planet for generations to come.

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are led by United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). They replace the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), which started a global collective effort to tackle poverty. The MDGs established, for the first time, measurable, universally-agreed objectives for tackling development priorities.

The 17 SDGs build on the successes of the MDGs but include new development challenges, such as climate change, sustainable consumption and peace and justice. They place increased importance on issues of disability, gender and equality.
