2030 Agenda

The agreement in September 2015 by all 193 UN Member States on the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development was a political success: Unlike the previous framework, the Millennium Development Goals, development is now seen as a process that challenges all countries and societies. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are an agenda of globally interconnected ambitions with regards to social and economic development, human rights, environmental sustainability, and peace and security. How to put the 17 SDGs and 169 targets in practice – and how to measure progress – will be the next political struggle at the UN and on the national level. FES New York works with its partners in New York and globally to make the Agenda 2030, as well as other international agreements such as the Paris Climate Accord a part of their own progressive, transformative politics.
