On 25 September 2015, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 169 associated targets are at the heart of this Agenda. These goals and targets build on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), which expired in 2015. However, whereas the MDGs were mainly aimed at poverty reduction in developing countries, the 2030 Agenda is a broad sustainability agenda for all countries, including the Netherlands. The Agenda calls on governments to translate the global SDGs into national targets and policies. The task of national governments is to set a level of ambition and formulate a clear, long-term vision defining what they would like to achieve with the 2030 Agenda.
