Why do we need to know about SDGs?
In the world of 8 billion people (According to a report by The United on Nov 15,2022) there are serious socio-economic problems deeply engraved within our society across the globe such as hunger and poverty.According to a report by the UN global hunger number rose to as many as 828 million by 2021.Another report based on latest poverty statistics shows 9.2% of global population or about 700 million people,live in extreme poverty.Extreme poverty line is defined as living on less than $1.90 per day.In addition to those living in extreme poverty, about 26% of global population or about 1.3 billion people,live in moderate poverty,defined as living on between $1.90 – $3.20/day. Due to these extremely unfortunate situations that we are facing, the United Nations came up with sustainable agendas which were agreed by 193 countries to address these problems and transform our world for the better.
There are 17 Sustainable Development goals(SDG) put forward by the United Nation.Each of the goals are presented for the enhancement of education, health, and economic prosperity as well as the global reduction of poverty and climate change. The SDGs are intended to defend the earth, and improve the lives and prospects of everyone.
To be a part of the global upliftment one must know about these sustainable goals in order to achieve a sustainable world.
What are the UN global goals?
There are 17SDGs.They are as follows :
- End Poverty of all forms
- Zero Hunger
- Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment
- Water Sanitation
- Economic Growth
- Sustainable production and consumption
- Climate Actions
- Biodiversity, forests, desertification
- Peace,Justice and Strong institutions.
- Partnerships for the goals
WHY SDGs are important?
The Sustainable Development Goals aim to protect the environment while solving key problems like poverty and hunger and creating a world of wealth. This has never been more crucial than it is right now, with the climate crisis.
Each of the objectives is interconnected, thus accomplishing one frequently requires achieving the others. The objectives can only be met if they are incorporated into every aspect of government.
Development that meets the demands of the present without compromising the capacity of future generations to satisfy their own needs is known as sustainable development. Each of the SDGs aims to raise living standards for everyone without exploiting natural resources.
WHAT ARE THE PILLARS OF SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENTS?
The 5 pillars of sustainable developments are: People, Planet, Prosperity, Peace, and Partnerships, each of which has sustainability at its foundation. These pillars are there to guide decision-making regarding government initiatives put in place to advance the SDGs.
