The Fondazione Achille Sclavo ONLUS has been a member of the U.N. SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT SOLUTION NETWORK since its inception in 2013 and among the very first Italian Network Associates.
The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by world leaders at a UN General Assembly on September 25th, officially came into force on January 1st 2016. These new Goals apply to all countries and will guide them for the next fifteen years, through efforts to end all forms of poverty, fight diseases and inequalities and address climate change causes, while ensuring that no one is left behind.
The success of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) was the stepping stone for the SDGs to go further and give an end to all forms of poverty. The new Goals differ from the MDGs, in that they require action by all countries of the world, in every continent and at every level of development to promote progress and improved living conditions, while protecting the planet. The SDGs acknowledge that ending poverty must go hand-in-hand with strategies that, besides stimulating economic growth also address a range of social needs including education, health, social protection, and job opportunities, while addressing climate change and environmental protection.
The 17 SDGs are not legally binding, but world governments are expected to follow their guidance establishing national frameworks for their achievement. Countries have the responsibility to follow-up on the SDGs monitoring the progress made in implementing them, also through quality and timely data collection. Regional follow-up will build upon national analyses and will feed into follow-up and reviews at the global level.
