The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
About the SDGs
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), otherwise known as the Global Goals, are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. These 17 Goals build on the successes of the Millennium Development Goals, while including new areas such as climate change, economic inequality, innovation, sustainable consumption, peace and justice, among other priorities. The goals are interconnected – often the key to success on one will involve tackling issues more commonly associated with another.
These goals are also for everyone and that is why we have translated them into some of Uganda's most spoken languages. The aim of this to enable everyone in Uganda to know and understand the what the SDGs are about.
