The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were established by the United Nations in 2015 as the new global sustainable development agenda for 2030. They are promoted as the global sustainable development goals. The SDGs will be in force from 2016 to 2030 and will replace the Millennium Development Goals that expired at the end of 2015. There are 17 goals and 169 underlying targets to operationalize these goals. The member states must themselves provide for translation into national policy.
