About the Sustainable Development Goals

Ratified in September 2015 by all 193 United Nations member states, the Sustainable Development Goals are a set of 17 goals to eradicate poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and fix climate change by year 2030.

Born from the legacy of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and a succession of environmental and high-level summits, the new Sustainable Development Goals have some unprecedented features.

While the MDGs focused primarily on halving the number of people in the world living in extreme poverty, and predominantly targeted progress in the developing world, the SDGs take a much more holistic approach to the contributing factors that create poverty both between countries and within them. As it has been said, under the new SDGs, “we are all developing countries”.

The SDGs acknowledge and encourage partnership and collaboration as essential to making progress. As a network involved with building the capacity of groups working towards sustainable development, BCCIC in undertaking a significant amount of work that seeks to both promote the general public’s awareness of these goals as well as facilitate partnerships and collaboration towards their achievement.

To learn more about these goals, their history, and how they apply specifically to Canada, please see BCCIC’s report “Keeping Score : The UN Sustainable Development Goals”.
