Sustainable Development Goals

What are the Sustainable Development Goals?

un sdgLogo
17 Goals for People, for Planet

The Sustainable Development Goals are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and improve the lives and prospects of everyone, everywhere. The 17 Goals were adopted by all UN Member States in 2015, as part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which set out a 15-year plan to achieve the Goals.

BFD recognizes that the environmental, social, and economic dimensions of the agenda’s Sustainable Development Goals are interdependent and must all be consistently reflected in its work. Achieving food security and ending hunger requires healthy natural ecosystems and sustainable use of natural resources. Many food-insecure populations bear the consequences of degraded land and, scarce water, biodiversity loss, polluted soils, water and air, and unmanaged waste. These environmental factors have impacts on human health and limit the availability, accessibility, utilization, and stability of food as well as to achieving water quality, management, and ensure availability, adequate and sustainable management of water, sanitation, and hygiene for all. Most of the population can’t access safe water. Therefore, BFD is focusing to achieve equitable access to safe and affordable drinking water for all vulnerable people and people in need.
