SDG Updates in 2014

SDG Updates in 2014

In the first quarter of 2014, the UN's Open Working Groups (OWGs), responsible for drafting the SDGs, finalized their working draft of the SDGs.  They narrowed the list of SDGs from 20 to the following 17.  Included with each goal, there are a list of specific targets (Sustainable Development Targets - SDTs) which will be used to track the progress being made towards these goals between 2015 and 2030. 

These 17 goals have been divided into six Elements to make them easier for people to identify so that engagement will be easier.  The six Elements are Dignity; People; Planet; Prosperity; Justice; and Partnership.  

The following list comes from Jan Goossenaerts and his site at Actor Atlas at
