Policies, strategies, debates | 2023-05-15 | Nunzia Cito

This Agenda is a plan of action for people, the planet and prosperity. It presents the 17 Sustainable Development Goals and 169 targets which are integrated and indivisible. Never before have world leaders pledged common action and endeavour across such a broad and universal policy agenda.

There are setting out on the path towards sustainable development, devoting ourselves collectively to the pursuit of global development and “win-win” cooperation which can bring huge gains to all countries and all parts of the world.
Every State has, and shall freely exercise, full permanent sovereignty over all its wealth, natural resources and economic activity.

The Agenda will be implemented for the full benefit of all, for today’s generation and for future generations. In doing so, the states reaffirm their commitment to international law and emphasize that the Agenda is to be implemented in a manner that is consistent with the rights and obligations of States under international law
