The 2030 Agenda is agreed by UN Member States as a plan of action for people, planet, prosperity and peace outlined through 17 Sustainable Development Goals and related targets.

2020 – UN75 Declaration

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Member States issued the UN75 Declarationthat included 12 overarching commitments along with a request that the Secretary-General report back to the General Assembly with recommendations to address current and future challenges.

2021 – Our Common Agenda

The Secretary-General responded to this call with Our Common Agenda, a wake-up call to speed up implementation of the SDGs as well as recommendations to address strategic gaps in global governance arrangements. It called for a Summit of the Future to forge a new global consensus on multilateral solutions to current and future problems.

2023 – SDG Summit

Marking the mid-point of the implementation of the 2030 Agenda, the SDG Summit in 2023 will be convened on 18-19 September 2023 to “mark the beginning of a new phase of accelerated progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals”.

2022-2024 – Summit of the Future
