United Nations

-  During a historic summit in 2015 they adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

It is an agenda for people, for the planet, for prosperity, for peace and for partnerships. It is about transforming our world by eradicating poverty and ensuring its transition to sustainable development.

World leaders agreed to 17 Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs. They are an expansive framework for improving the quality of life on this planet within a generation. To build a better world by 2030.
5 P's of Sustainable Development

The Sustainable Development Goals replace the eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) adopted by the United Nations in 2000 for - Southern countries -, covering the main humanitarian challenges for 2015.

Overlapping Rotary and UN Goals
Rotary clubs carry out service projects that enhance economic and community development and create opportunities for decent and productive work for young and old. We also help local entrepreneurs and community leaders, particularly women, in impoverished communities.

A central pillar of both the SDGs and Rotary's own humanitarian objectives is recognition of the critical importance of developing mutually beneficial partnerships between governments, civil society organizations, like Rotary, and the business community.

And the best example of a partnership that has made a lasting positive impact on communities around the world has been the Rotary led effort to eradicate polio.

I believe that the more closely we align our work with the work of the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals, the better we will be able to leverage that work, and the more we will be able to achieve.
