The Brundtland Report, published in 1987 by the World Commission on Environment and Development, chaired by Gro Harlem Brundtland, highlighted the urgency of harmonising economic development with social and environmental preservation.

The report coined sustainable development as “development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” It emphasised the importance of integrating policies across different sectors, such as agriculture, energy, trade, and investment, to achieve a balanced and ethical approach to development.

The Sustainable Development Goals are the driving force behind Agenda 2030, a global commitment to take urgent, bold and transformative steps to shift the world onto a sustainable and resilient path.

The 17 Goals were adopted by all 193 UN Member States in 2015, as part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development which set out a 15-year plan to achieve the Goals. Agenda 2030 and its 17 SDGs aim to eradicate poverty, protect the planet and improve the lives and prospects of everyone, everywhere. The 2030 Agenda is a continuation of the UN Millennium Development Goals (2000-2015) which were in their day the first international consensus on facing global problems such as the eradication of extreme poverty and hunger, and to promote improvements in access to education. Although the targets were not fully achieved, they nevertheless provided the basis for significant progress which, in 2015, was extended through the 2030 Agenda and its respective SDGs.
