The ILO DW for SDGs Notes Series

In 2015 world leaders adopted 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all.  The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development builds on progress achieved under the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and provides a roadmap for coordinated global action to tackle the formidable challenges facing humanity, including in the world of work. With the 2030 Agenda the global community has recognized the importance of the ILO's Decent Work Agenda in making inclusive sustainable development a reality.
