Post-2015: a new sustainable development agenda
Post-2015 Development Goals

Voices around the world are demanding leadership on poverty, inequality and climate change. To turn these demands into actions, world leaders gather at the United Nations in New York to adopt a new agenda for sustainable development on 25 September.

These new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), or Global Goals, will guide policy and funding for the next 15 years, beginning with a historic pledge to end poverty. Everywhere. Permanently.

Paul Ladd, Director of the UNDP Team on the Post-2015 Development Agenda, talks about 2015, a year in which countries will shape a new development agenda and reach a global agreement on climate change.

The Global Goals replace the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), which in September 2000 rallied the world around a common 15-year agenda to tackle the indignity of poverty.
