Sustainable Development Goals

What are the Sustainable Development Goals?

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet. In this blueprint there are 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) that provide a roadmap to the member states of the United Nations to insure the health and wellbeing of the planet and all living beings.

These goals aim to address environmental, economic and social challenges, and are interconnected in a way that ensures that no one gets left behind. Canada stands among the 192 member states that have adopted the seventeen goals, and has taken a further focus on six key areas to:

Eliminate Poverty
Advance Self – Determination and Improve Relationships With Indigenous Peoples
Advance Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women and Girls
Foster Inclusion
Grow the Economy and Narrow the Socio-Economic Gaps That Exist Between Different Groups
Advance Action on Climate Change and Clean Growth

How Can Regenerative Organic Agriculture Help Canada?

For Canada to fulfill its broad and specific commitments to the SDGs, communities across the country require leadership at all levels, including the federal government, the provincial and territorial governments, municipalities and national Indigenous organizations. The approach must be inclusive and all-encompassing, as are the goals.
