This Agenda is a plan of action for people, planet and prosperity. It also seeks to  strengthen universal peace in larger freedom. We recognize that eradicating poverty in all its  forms and dimensions, including extreme poverty, is the greatest global challenge and an  indispensable requirement for sustainable development.

All countries and all stakeholders, acting in collaborative partnership, will implement  this plan. We are resolved to free the human race from the tyranny of poverty and want and  to heal and secure our planet. We are determined to take the bold and transformative steps  which are urgently needed to shift the world on to a sustainable and resilient path. As we  embark on this collective journey, we pledge that no one will be left behind.

The 17 Sustainable Development Goals and 169 targets which we are announcing today  demonstrate the scale and ambition of this new universal Agenda. They seek to build on the  Millennium Development Goals and complete what they did not achieve. They seek to realize  the human rights of all and to achieve gender equality and the empowerment of all women  and girls. They are integrated and indivisible and balance the three dimensions of sustainable  development: the economic, social and environmental.

The Goals and targets will stimulate action over the next 15 years in areas of critical  importance for humanity and the planet.


We are determined to end poverty and hunger, in all their forms and dimensions, and  to ensure that all human beings can fulfil their potential in dignity and equality and in a healthy  environment.


We  are  determined  to  protect  the  planet  from  degradation,  including  through  sustainable consumption and production, sustainably managing its natural resources and  taking urgent action on climate change, so that it can support the needs of the present and  future generations.


We are determined to ensure that all human beings can enjoy prosperous and fulfilling  lives and that economic, social and technological progress occurs in harmony with nature.


We are determined to foster peaceful, just and inclusive societies which are free from  fear and violence. There can be no sustainable development without peace and no peace  without sustainable development.
