Sustainable Development Goals
At the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit on 25 September 2015, more than 150 world leaders adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which includes 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These goals aim to end poverty, hunger and inequality, take action on climate change and the environment, improve access to health and education, build strong institutions and partnerships, and more.

How PAGE is meeting the Sustainable Development Goals
PAGE is aligned with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in many ways, especially with SDGs that relate to the economy, jobs, the environment and climate change, and partnerships. This alignment with the global sustainability agenda and the contribution it can make towards advancing countries’ sustainability ambitions was recognized in the run-up to the UN Summit on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development
Investing in all forms of capital
Achieving the SDGs requires significant investments in social capital, natural capital, and financial capital.
PAGE helps deliver on the SDGs by:
- catalysing additional investment
- creating a shift in existing investment towards these forms of capital through the reform of macroeconomic policies.
An initial review of the SDGs and their targets shows that most of them can be advanced through an Inclusive Green Economy approach.
Inclusive Green Economy is an effective tool for achieving sustainable development and poverty eradication. In a green economy, growth in income and employment are driven by policies and investments that prevent the loss of biodiversity and ecosystem services which is included in the 2030 Agenda.
