MDGs and SDGs (Statistics and Reports)

The Future We Want or the Rio+20 document provides the agreement of the Member States to develop a set of Sustainable Development Goals which build upon the Millennium Development Goals.

It was further agreed that SDGs must be:

  • Action- oriented
  • Concise
  • Easy to communicate
  • Limited in number
  • Aspirational
  • Global in nature
  • Universally applicable to all countries while taking into account different national realities, capacities and levels of development and respecting national policies and priorities.

The outcome document further specifies that the development of SDGs should:

  • Be useful for pursuing focused and coherent action on sustainable development
  • Contribute to the achievement of sustainable development
  • Serve as a driver for implementation and mainstreaming of sustainable development in the UN system as a whole
  • Address and be focused on priority areas for the achievement of sustainable development
