Locally, people work together to address health and development goals—e.g., health access, clean water, education—that are important in their context. This work also occurs nationally, regionally, and locally.
Globally, in 2015, United Nations member countries adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, and peace and justice.
There is a commitment to addressing the SDGs in the African Region as they relate to the determined needs and context of the countries and communities in the Region.
Working together, we can make progress on these important goals—locally, nationally, and globally.
