In June 2012, governments agreed at the UN Conference on Sustainable Development (also known as Rio+20 or Earth Summit 2012) to launch a set of universal sustainable development goals (SDGs). The SDGs aim to focus on social, environmental and economic development in a coordinated way. The goals will be applicable to all countries.
The SDGs were introduced by the United Nations in 2015 and replaced the Millennium Development Goals which had been the focus for development between 2000 and 2015.
