SDGs Pledge To ‘Leave No One Behind’
Huffington Post: Sustainable Development Goals for the World
Ban Ki-moon, secretary-general of the United Nations
“…The Millennium Development Goals, adopted in 2000, have improved the lives of millions of people. … But much more needs to be done, especially to reach the most marginalized and vulnerable and put us all on a sustainable-development path. The new agenda and [Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)] embody a commitment to leave no one behind. … Just as so many people joined in the process of articulating the SDGs, achieving them requires effort from everyone, everywhere. The United Nations and I look forward to working with people across the world to bring the goals to life and to transform our world. That’s the plan; that’s the promise; let’s get to work” (9/25).
