The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) or Global Goals are a collection of seventeen (17) interlinked global goals designed to be a “blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all”. The SDGs were set in 2015 by the United Nations General Assembly and are intended to be achieved by the year 2030. They are included in a UN Resolution called the 2030 Agenda or what is colloquially known as Agenda 2030.

The specific targets of the 17 SDGs are:

  • No Poverty,
  • Zero Hunger,
  • Good Health and Well-being,
  • Quality Education,
  • Gender Equality,
  • Clean Water and Sanitation,
  • Affordable and Clean Energy,
  • Decent Work and Economic Growth,
  • Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure,
  • Reducing Inequality,
  • Sustainable Cities and Communities,
  •  Responsible Consumption and Production,
  • Climate Action,
  • Life Below Water,
  • Life On Land,
  • Peace, Justice, and Strong Institutions,
  •  Partnerships for the Goals.

The Edo State Office of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), is an initiative that has recorded achievements in areas of inter-agency relations, capacity building, advocacy and beyond.

This has enabled Edo State to easily link its development plans, which are built on six thematic pillars of the seventeen SDGs and its targets, and has served as a roadmap for attaining sustainable and inclusive growth in the state. Edo State continues to show commitment to implementing the SDG agenda.
