The 17 SDGs and 169 targets seek to eradicate poverty, strengthen human rights, and promote gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls. They are integrated and indivisible and balance the three dimensions of sustainable development: The economic, social and environmental. The goals and targets will stimulate action in areas of critical importance for humanity and the planet.
