On 25 September 2015, the UN-Assembly General adopted the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development (UN Resolution A7RES/70/1, New York), in which the Global Goals are declined to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all.

The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 Agenda refer to different areas of social, economic and environmental development, which need to be considered in an integrated approach, as well as the processes that may accompany and foster them in a sustainable way, that safeguards the planet and guarantees the well-being of people and an equitable distribution of development over time.

The 17 goals are articulated in 169 targets and the United Nations Inter Agency Expert Group on SDGs (UN-IAEG-SDGs) proposed a first list of more than 230 indicators for their monitoring, which represent the general framework.
