My political beliefs — the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals

In 2015, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development that includes 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

These goals that build on the principle of “leaving no one behind”, free from political dogma, and using a humanist, holistic approach to sustainable development lie at the centre of my political beliefs.

  • GOAL 1: End poverty in all its forms everywhere
  • GOAL 2: End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture
  • GOAL 3: Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages
  • GOAL 4: Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all
  • GOAL 5: Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls
  • GOAL 6: Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all
  • GOAL 7: Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all
  • GOAL 8: Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all
  • GOAL 9: Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialisation and foster innovation
  • GOAL 10: Reduced Inequality
  • GOAL 11: Make cities and communities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable
  • GOAL 12: Responsible Consumption and Production
  • GOAL 13: Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts
  • GOAL 14: Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development
  • GOAL 15: Protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss

  • GOAL 17: Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalise the global partnership for sustainable development
