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. Today, progress is being made in many places, but, overall, action to meet the Goals is not yet advancing at the speed or scale required. Later this year the UN will hold a progress review meeting to try and step up actions to meet the goals.
As a publisher, you have likely begun to take steps to show how the research you publish is helping drive SDG progress. You may have signed up for the UN’s SDG Publisher Compact, or added reference to the SDGs into your strategic plans. But turning those commitments into results takes resources that you may not have readily available.
Kudos can help.
