Serbia and 2030 agenda

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 Agenda formally came into effect on 1 January 2016, following the adoption of a resolution at the UN summit in September 2015. This is a global development agenda for the period beyond 2015. In the next 15 years, the state parties are expected to mobilise all resources to eradicate poverty, fight inequality and devise a response to climate change. The Sustainable Development Goals, also known as the global goals, build on the Millennium Development Goals and recognise that fight against poverty goes hand in hand with economic growth and industrialisation, are geared towards many societal needs, including health, education, social protection, healthy environment and communities resilient to climate change.
