Sustainable Development



2015 is the Time for Global Action

2015 presents a historic and unprecedented opportunity to bring the countries and citizens of the world together to decide and embark on new paths to improve the lives of people everywhere. These decisions will determine the global course of action to end poverty, promote prosperity and well-being for all, protect the environment and address climate change.

This year, countries already adopted a new sustainable development agenda and will adopt a new global agreement on climate change in December. Explore this site to find out more about the efforts of the UN and its partners to build a better world.
