SDGS (SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS)

THE SDGS (SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS) WERE ADOPTED BY ALL THE WORLD’S GOVERNMENTS AT THE UNITED NATIONS IN 2015. AND THEY WILL GUIDE GLOBAL DEVELOPMENT UNTIL THE YEAR 2030.

The United Nation’s High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF) is happening, and is an opportunity for national governments to provide an update on their progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals — known as the SDGs.

View all 17 of the goals

 

This year, 47 national governments will be giving updates on SDGs 6, 7, 11, 12, 15 and 17. Read a statement by Habitat for Humanity  about why they care about the updates, especially on SDG 11 to make cities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.

What makes a city more resilient and life more stable for families? Access to safe and affordable housing. 

Think about it. What does your home represent for you? A place of refuge, comfort, stability? 

Everyone deserves that. 

Because we, too, want to live in a sustainable and resilient society, we are calling on national governments and the United Nations to follow through on their SDG commitments to ensure cities are inclusive, safe and susatinable so that everyone has a decent place to live.
