Sustainable Development Goals 

What are the Global Goals?

The United Nations' Global Goals, also known as the Sustainable Development Goals or Agenda 2030, are a set of 17 interconnected goals designed to make the world a fairer, healthier, happier and more sustainable place for everyone by 2030. While Concern's programmes don’t support all 17 SDGs, all of our programmes touch on at least one of the SDGs and their related indicators and targets. All of our work is towards the larger goal of ending extreme poverty.
