Sustainable Development Goals

Five years ago, world leaders came together to establish the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a collection of 17 global goals designed to be a "blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all" by 2030. 

As a global development community, we were already struggling to make enough progress to achieve the desired outcomes by 2030. COVID-19 has made achieving these goals even more difficult, highlighting and exacerbating underlying inequalities around the world. 

At World Vision, we continue to be commited towards achieving these goals and celebrate the progress that has been made while adapting and adjusting our programmes to respond to current realities. 

Are we reaching our goals?
