Who created the SDGs and why?
The SGDs are an initiative created by the United Nations at the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development in Rio de Janeiro in 2012.
The SDGs aim, according to the UNDP, at producing a set of “universal goals” that meet the urgent environmental, political and economic challenges our world is going through.
The SDGs were preceded by the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) created in 2000 to tackle poverty. The achievements of the MDGs are impressive and remain intact but for millions of people around the globe a lot more has still to be done. This is where the SDGs come in as they are an engagement to finish what the MDGs started and to address other critical challenges (2).
