Implementation and success will rely on countries’ own sustainable development policies, plans and programmes - Countries are expected to take ownership and establish a national framework for achieving the 17 Goals and have the primary responsibility for follow-up and review, at the national, regional and global levels, with regard to the progress made in implementing the Goals and targets over the next 15 years. Actions at the national level to monitor progress will require quality, accessible and timely data collection and regional follow-up and review.
Sustainable development has been defined as development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.Sustainable development calls for concerted efforts towards building an inclusive, sustainable and resilient future for people and planet. For sustainable development to be achieved, it is crucial to harmonize three core elements: economic growth, social inclusion and environmental protection. These elements are interconnected and all are crucial for the well-being of individuals and societies.
Eradicating poverty in all its forms and dimensions is an indispensable requirement for sustainable development. To this end, there must be promotion of sustainable, inclusive and equitable economic growth, creating greater opportunities for all, reducing inequalities, raising basic standards of living, fostering equitable social development and inclusion, and promoting integrated and sustainable management of natural resources and ecosystems.
