Sustainable Development Goals

The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development were adopted by world leaders in September 2015 at a historic UN Summit. On 1 January 2016, the SDGs officially came into force. Over the next fifteen years, with these new goals that universally apply to all nations, countries will mobilize efforts to end all forms of poverty, fight inequalities and tackle climate change, while ensuring that no one is left behind.

Implementation of the project “Integrated Natural Resources Management in Degraded Landscapes in the Forest-Steppe and Steppe Zones of Ukraine” aims at achieving Sustainable Development Goals. Implementation of Goal 15 of the SDGs “Life on land” would directly relate to SDG 2 “No hunger” and SDG 8 “Decent work and economic growth” since about 80% of food is grown in agro-landscapes and requires skilled personnel. The project supports the endorsement of other SDGs as they are all mutually connected.
