Development is the general paradigm of the UN. The concept was described in
the 1987 Brundtland Commission Report
as "development that meets the
needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to
meet their own needs.”
The UN General
Assembly adopted the 2030 Agenda for
Sustainable Development, a plan of action for people, planet and
prosperity. It also seeks to strengthen universal
peace and access to justice, and
proposes 17 Sustainable Development
Goals (SDG) with 169 economic,
social and environmental targets to be achieved over the next 15 years.
What are the SDG?
Good health & well-being
Clean water and sanitation
Affordable and clean energy
Decent work and economic growth
Industry, innovation and infrastructure
Sustainable cities and communities
Responsible consumption and production
Life below water
Life on land
Peace, justice and strong institutions
Partnerships for the goals

inclusion and the importance of measuring
the progress of the new development agenda.
Sponsorship of the consultation on energy,
together with the governments of Tanzania and Norway.
