The 2030 Agenda – which consists of a Declaration, 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 169 associated targets – seeks to ensure that all nations and all people everywhere are reached and included in achieving the SDGs. It offers a universal, integrated, transformative and human rights-based vision for sustainable development, peace and security, which is applicable to all people and all countries, including the most developed.
Placing sustainability at the core – a new approach to due diligence
Sustainable development is development that is grounded in five dimensions, which have been expressed through the 5 pillars of sustainable development: people, planet, prosperity, as well as peace and partnerships. These 5P’s provide a new guidance for due diligence for any intervention to address development and societal challenges across the world. For a development intervention to be sustainable, it needs to take into account the social, economic and ecological consequences it generates and lead to conscious choices in terms of the trade offs and spin offs it creates.
