GT – 2030 AGENDA (Sustainable Development Goals Indicators – SDG)
In 2012, after the conclusion of the United Nations Conference on Rio + 20 development, Agenda 2030 was created by consensus among the participants. This document is made up of a scientific basis, goals and indicators that indicate the progress of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). Three years after its creation in September 2015, Heads of State for Governments and other representatives of the United Nations gathered in New York and agreed to adopt 2030 Agenda as a new agenda for aligning actions between governments, companies, academy and civil society.
2030 Agenda lists the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, seven more than the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), which considers the social, environmental and economic dimensions in an integrated and indivisible part across its 169 goals. The time horizon agreed by the countries to achieve these goals and objectives is 15 years, 2030 being the final year of validity of the SDG.
This document arises through the need to reach goals that may be closer to the realities of governments around the world, considering the culture and social diversities. In line with the UN's global actions, GT 2030 Agenda aims to revisit the SDG indicators relevant to the sustainable development of the Amazon and propose ways of adapting these indicators to the Amazon reality to achieve the objectives of 2030 Agenda in the region of the Brazilian Amazon.
