In 2015, after 8 rounds of intergovernmental negotiations and with the inputs of a wide variety of stakeholders, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were launched to replace the Millennium Development goals (MDGs) starting 2016 and to guide the work of the United Nations for the next 15 years.
The 2030 Agenda places people at its core and aims to achieve a rights-based sustainable development under a renewed global partnership, in which all countries participate at an equal footing. Poverty eradication and addressing inequalities are central in the new Agenda, and are key priorities for Latin America and the Caribbean.
