Importance of sustainable development goals and three themes of the SDGs

Ruchira Gupta, UN Ambassador, talks of the importance of the SDGs. This enables the world population to prosper whilst sustaining the global environment. All UN members signed up to the SDGs. 

For the UK, one key objective was to ensure action against corruption and accountability of organisations are embedded in the SDGs. 

Some 50m children are born annually without a legal identity. They are susceptible to marginalisation. These children will not get access to good schools, to justice, not even to a bank account. 

Three themes of new SDGs:

  1. Leave no one behind;
  2. Wide range of stakeholders to be involved;
  3. Technological innovation will be key.
