Commitments and Roadmap for a Planet 5050 by 2030

In 2015, the international community adopted the Agenda 2030, the intergovernmental agreement of greatest comprehensiveness, breadth and complementarity to the Charter of Nations in 1945.

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) are an extraordinary achievement of governments around the world, to which civil society, the private sector, academia and many other stake- holders have made a decisive contribution.

The Agenda 2030 reaffirmed that gender equality is a condition sine qua non for sustainable development and, at the same time, an indispensable outcome of it.

The 17 SDGs and its 169 targets will complement what remained to be achieved under the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs): realizing the human rights of all, including the realization of gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls. This global commitment moves further the frontiers of social justice, inclusion and human rights. Over the next few years, until 2030, areas of critical importance for humanity and the planet grouped together in the so-called “5 P” will be mobilized, as central spheres that structure the Agenda 2030:


People:
The international community has set out to eradicate hunger and poverty and to en- sure that everyone achieves their potential in dignity and equality and in a healthy environment.

Planet: Member States are committed to protect the planet from degradation, to sustainably manage natural resources and to take urgent action on climate change, in order to meet the needs of present and future generations.

Prosperity: Governments expressed their de- termination to ensure that all human beings enjoy prosperous and full lives and that economic, social and technological development takes place in harmony with nature.

Peace: Peaceful, just and inclusive societies, free from violence, will be promoted. The Agenda 2030 recognizes the determining relationship between peace and sustainable development.

Partnerships: For the effective implementation of the Agenda 2030, a Global Alliance for Sustainable Development is required, based on world solidarity, and focused on the particular needs of the most vulnerable population and with the participation of all women, men, girls and boys.
